John O'Shea: Out of Ireland squad

John O'Shea: Out of Ireland squad

Martin O'Neill's squad fly out to the United States for friendlies against Costa Rica in Philadelphia and Portugal in New Jersey, and he will have the chance to look at some different options at the back.

On top of the key defensive trio, who had been expected to stay at home, Wolves utility player Stephen Ward will also miss the Costa Rica game, but he could arrive in time to play Portugal on June 10.

O'Neill oversaw his final training session before the flight in Malahide on Tuesday with a number of other players absent.

Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark suffered a minor knee injury before the 0-0 draw with Italy on Friday and he is still receiving treatment with his club.

Stoke forward Jon Walters is suffering with a stomach bug, and midfielders Wes Hoolahan and David Meyler were given the day off to try and recover from knocks they suffered against the Italians.

They are following recovery programmes but are still expected to travel with the squad on Wednesday, while Anthony Pilkington did routine post game gym work instead of training according to the Football Association of Ireland.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
