KEVIN DOYLE EXPECTS to return to training shortly despite suffering a dreadful injury last night at the Aviva Stadium.

Doyle was stretchered off after 27 minutes of the Republic of Ireland’s 1-0 win against Switzerland in a friendly.

The Colorado Rapids striker, who was being capped for the first time since October 2014, was injured after a challenge from Swiss player Tim Klose.

The incident left Doyle with a horrendous gash on the inside of his left shin, which he later tweeted a picture of (not for the squeamish).

The graphic nature of the image didn’t appear to bode well for the 32-year-old, but he has taken to Twitter again this morning to issue a positive update.

“Thanks to the surgeons at the Mater Hospital,” said Doyle. “Leg looks brand new. No serious damage. Back jogging in a few weeks.”
