Statement from Alan Kelly
The former Ireland goalkeeper told FAI.ie: “I opted to stay behind and return home when the team flew to Dublin on Monday. This is a personal decision as I am asthmatic.
“This is a very trying time for everyone in football during the pandemic and I have had to take this decision with my own health in mind.
“I want to wish Stephen Kenny, his players and staff the very best of luck for Wednesday night against Bulgaria.”
