Shay Given returns to Republic of Ireland training ahead of Euro 2012
Friday 08 June 2012
Republic of Ireland keeper Shay Given was back in training today a little more than 48 hours before his side's Euro 2012 opener against Croatia.
The 36-year-old, who sat out parts of yesterday's session, was back between the posts as this morning's session at the Municipal Stadium in Gdynia ended with a game.
Given's fitness has been a concern since he damaged a knee in Malahide a day after joining up, with a calf strain and blistered feet since sparking fresh unease despite reassurances from goalkeeping coach Alan Kelly and assistant manager Marco Tardelli.
All 23 players were present and correct as they prepared to head for Poznan tomorrow in advance of Sunday night's Group C encounter with the Croatians.
