Ireland team named for Euro qualifier
Ireland captain Robbie Keane and central defender Richard Dunne have both been named in the team to face Armenia in tomorrow's Euro 2012 qualifier in Yerevan.
Keane is battling a knee problem while Dunne has missed several days' training this week with a muscle problem.
However, both were expected to take part in the session at the Yerevan Republican Stadium this evening and be available for the game.
Dunne will line up in a back four alongside Sean St Ledger with John O'Shea and Kevin Kilbane as the full-backs, while the midfield will comprise Liam Lawrence, Paul Green, Glenn Whelan and Aiden McGeady.
Keane, who will win his 101st senior international cap, will partner Kevin Doyle in attack.
