Dunne set to play a part

first_img Press Association The 33-year-old central defender has not made a single appearance for either his club Aston Villa or his country all season because of injury. However, having trained with his international team-mates for the last few days, he is set to end his enforced exile at the Aviva Stadium. Trapattoni said: “I have spoken with him and I have already said he will play some of the game on Sunday. Whether he will start or come on later, we have to decide, but it is possible for him to play.” Full-back Marc Wilson, who missed Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with England because of a calf problem, will also be involved, and both back-up keepers, Keiren Westwood and Darren Randolph, could see action. However, Trapattoni has indicated that key midfielder Glenn Whelan will be rested five days before the World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands. center_img Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni has confirmed Richard Dunne will play some part in Sunday’s friendly against Georgia.last_img read more

The athletic bench lost the opportunity to claim

first_imgThe center had minutes again after not playing since December 14. And as he has become accustomed to Cholo, he responded well by highlighting mainly for his ball out. Beautiful met very well during the absences of Savic and Giménez due to injury, but with the return of the two plants (although the Uruguayan has relapsed) and Felipe’s enormous level, he has been relegated to the bench. Arias for his part I had in Copa the opportunity to cut ground with Trippier, undisputed holder on the right side on arrival. He currently has two games in eleven for the pubalgia of English, but he is expected to return soon, returning to eleven. For its part Llorente did not play as a starter since November 23 and in Copa it was a propitious place to show its virtues to Cholo. Saponjic debuted after 29 games without minutes and played well on his back, being able to score twice. But the elimination copera closes a door of minutes, since it is the only competition where Simeone has had him. Simeone opted for an eleven with news in León, although without changing the block completely leaving players of the weight of Felipe, Saúl, João Félix or Correa in eleven. However, the elimination of the first exchange against a team of Second Division B leaves touched some of the players who had his opportunity before the Cultural, since the absences of Oblak and Morata They were too remarkable and nobody could cover their gap. Although Atlético could do many more goals if not for Lucas Giffard, Cultural goal that became the hero of its classification, several of the rojiblancos players lose with the elimination of Copa the opportunity to have minutes and be seen by Simeone. Players like Beautiful, Arias, Llorente or Saponjic they are some of the most punished players for the defeat, since in the Cup they could find the hole that they cannot have in the League. Adam, Herrera and VitoloOther players who missed an opportunity to take a step forward and in their case were more marked were Adam, Herrera and Vitolo. The goalkeeper was the first starter in the course, since sitting Oblak in the League or Champions League is an impossible mission and made a serious mistake in clenching fists that it ended up culminating in the first goal of the Leonesa Cultural. Herrera is accumulating entitlements with the loss of Koke, but is not able to provide a ball out or criterion in the mattress game. It seems that during a section of the season he did not have opportunities when he deserved them and now that he is having them he is not taking advantage of them.Finally, in the case of the Canary, his baggage in the team is much greater, since he is not a newcomer in summer. In León, his best version could not be seen, that unbalanced that is thrown to the team behind his back. Vitolo had two hand in hand with the local goal and could not win in any of them, finishing off the first one and the second marking his choice to the goal, which drew a great hand. He left replaced with the possibility of being the hero without success. Atletico B players will also be affected. Manu Sánchez started for the second time this season, his debut had come in league and Riquelme and Camel were the options from the bench of Simeone in search of the goal. Although the squad is very short, elimination takes over the playing options of the youth players.last_img read more
