Travers ruled out of EURO 2020 qualifiers

Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy is assessing his goalkeeping options after Mark Travers left the squad following an injury sustained during the training camp in Portugal.
24th May 2019

Travers suffered a hand injury and, after undergoing medical treatment and having an x-ray, it was decided that the AFC Bournemouth player should be released in order to let it heal.

"It is an injury that Alan Kelly [goalkeeping coach] and the Doc [Alan Byrne] has never seen...he's got a displaced fracture of his thumb," McCarthy told FAI TV.

"It's really sad for us because he's a great lad to have around the place and a good goalkeeper, but he's got to go back and get it repaired if he wants to be ready for the start of the [Premier League] season."
