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

Walters sat out Tuesday's training session at Abbotsown due to the injury and the management team have decided to release him from the squad to allow him to return to Stoke to receive treatment.

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.

Harry Arter returned to Bournemouth to receive treatment for an Achilles problem, while Jeff Hendrick has also been ruled out because ofo a shoulder injury.

"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."
