Keane sits out training

Ireland skipper Robbie Keane sat out training on Wednesday morning just two days before the World Cup qualifier in Germany.

The 33-year-old LA Galaxy frontman watched from the sidelines after taking a kick to the ankle.

However, goalkeeping coach Alan Kelly later insisted Keane was not a doubt for Friday night's Group C encounter in Cologne.

Interim manager Noel King and his players were due to fly out of Dublin on Wednesday afternoon to complete their preparations in Germany.
