Hendrick And Ward Travel to Copenhagen

The full Republic of Ireland squad took part in training on Thursday, before departing for Copenhagen and Saturday’s World Cup Play Off game.

Stephen Ward and Jeff Hendrick came through the session without any problems, Hendrick having undergone specialised training sessions with FAI medical staff in previous days.

Goalkeeper Colin Doyle has returned to his club.


Captain Seamus Coleman and forward Jonathan Walters linked up with the squad in a supporting role ahead of the departure to Copenhagen.
