O'Shea sent home by Ireland
Manchester United defender John O'Shea has been sent back to his club to avoid further damage to his calf.
Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni has allowed the 28-year-old, who played in Saturday night's World Cup victory in Cyprus, to return to Manchester for scans on a calf problem.
Trapattoni revealed tonight that the decision had been taken in an effort to prevent the damage from getting any worse and incurring a lengthy lay-off.
He said: "Today, he could not play because he had a bleed on the calf. He couldn't run today.
"I told him to be careful because when you pull that muscle, it is two months.
"It was not just for me, it was also for the club he must decide."
