Jonathan Walters has been ruled out of the Republic of Ireland's upcoming Three international friendly against Switzerland because of a hamstring injury.

However, he is expected to return to the camp ahead of Tuesday's game against Slovakia.

"Jon, I think he will be fit for Tuesday, he just thought he might be best to go home for a day or two. He should be back on Friday night to watch the game. He will definetly play on Tuesday," Martin O'Neill told reporters.

"Jeff has got a shoulder injury that he has had to deal with for quite a number of weeks now so we thought it best going back and getting is sorted a club level," added O'Neill.

"Robbie Keane sat out training again but there is no real problem. He will be okay and will be available for any of the two games."
