Glenn Whelan sits out training... with a sore throat

The post-wedding sing-song must have taken it out of the Stoke midfielder last weekend.

AFTER A COUPLE of days in the Irish camp in which Giovanni Trapattoni has plenty of injury concerns to ponder, the last thing fans wanted to see was another starter sitting out training.

Glenn Whelan watched the action at Malahide from the bench earlier, though fans will be assured that the Stoke midfielder is suffering from little more than a sore throat.

The news comes as goalkeeper Shay Given is in London to see a knee specialist, while Paul McShane trained with the squad. His call-up came while defenders Richard Dunne and Sean St Ledger continued to nurse their muscle injuries.

John O’Shea and Kevin Foley did train at Gannon Park however.
