23-man Euro 2012 squad submitted to UEFA

McShane replaces Kevin Foley...
29th May 2012

Giovanni Trapattoni today (May 29) submitted his 23 player list to UEFA for EURO 2012.

Commenting on the selection, Giovanni Trapattoni said;"With the injuries that we experienced in the squad over the past week, I have had to make a tough decision when it comes to naming the 23 players that must be submitted to UEFA for the championship.

"Kevin Foley, John O'Shea, Paul McShane, Darren O'Dea, Shay Given had all been carrying knocks and we have been monitoring them closely in their recovery.

"Although Kevin has been recovering well, I have made the difficult decision to leave him out of the 23 player list after completing fitness tests on John O'Shea and Paul Mc Shane this morning.

"I have spoken to him and he understands how difficult it is, saying that he can remain with the squad if he wishes."
