Relief as Given gets the all-clear for Euro 2012

Goalkeeper tells his Twitter followers he’ll be back training next week.

YOU CAN STOP lighting those candles now, Shay Given should be fit for Euro 2012.

The Donegal shot stopper visited a specialist today after picking up a knee injury in training with Ireland.

However, despite fears he could miss some or all of Ireland’s tournament, the Aston Villa man told his 130,000 Twitter followers today they had nothing to worry about.

The news will come as some relief to Irish fans who are also fretting on the fitness of John O’Shea and Glenn Whelan ahead of the tournament.
