Sounds like he'll be back for the Fulham game. Would you put him back in the first team?
Trap still hopeful over O'Shea
Giovanni Trapattoni is hopeful that John O'Shea will be able to play some part in the Republic of Ireland's Euro 2012 play-offs against Estonia.
O'Shea will definitely miss Friday's first leg in Tallinn through injury but Trapattoni has confirmed the Sunderland full-back will team up with the squad on Saturday with a view to having him available for the return leg at the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday.
"We will wait for John O'Shea. He is not fit for this [the first] game, but he will come with us on Saturday," Trapattoni said.
Ireland are the favourites to progress to next summer's tournaments but their record in play-offs is something Trapattoni is aware of as he prepares his side for the upcoming matches.
"In these games, we have a great opportunity, but we are also aware that we are facing a team that has very good organisation on the pitch and we should not under-estimate them," Trapattoni said.
"We will have to show our pride. I am proud of our team and it will be very important for us to show all the Irish people our quality, our mentality and our attitude.
"Only with this attitude, we can get over these 180 minutes and achieve qualification."
