Walters struggling for fitness


Jonathan Walters is struggling to be fit for Ireland's Euro 2016 Group E clash against Belgium due to an Achilles injury.

Walters had been a major doubt for the opener against Sweden after struggling with injury in the lead up to the match, but, after coming through a fitness test and a full training session on Saturday, he was named in the starting XI for the 1-1 draw.

He was injured early in the game at the Stade de France but played on before being replaced by James McClean after 64 minutes.

Martin O'Neill expressed concern over the player's availability for the Belgium game on Monday and it is looking increasingly likely that the Stoke player will be ruled out of Saturday's game in Bordeaux after sitting out Wednesday’s training session in Versailles.

"He’s going to be struggling for the game," O'Neill told reporters on Wednesday.

"He thinks that if he doesn’t make this game, he’s hoping that he should maybe make it for the Italian game.

"There would have to be a lot of improvement for him to come through and be ready for it (Belgium match).

"If the game was tomorrow he wouldn’t make it."
