Trapattoni: Has picked strongest available side

Darren O'Dea will partner Sean St Ledger in central defence as Richard Dunne serves a one-match ban, while Glenn Whelan will continue in midfield despite heading into the tie at the Estadi Comunale on a yellow card.

Skipper Robbie Keane will join forces with Kevin Doyle in attack, with Trapattoni confident the Wolves man has regained his match-sharpness following his recovery from a knee injury.

Ireland team v Andorra: Given; O'Shea, St Ledger, O'Dea, Ward; Duff, Whelan, Andrews, McGeady; Doyle, Keane (capt).
