Keane not concerned by Hendrick absense

Keane not concerned by Hendrick absense”

"In terms of Stephen Ward, it's just a matter of keeping an eye on his knee".

O'Neill had been discussing Hendrick's issue on Monday, vaguely stating that the Burnley man had an injury "somewhere on his body" (since flagged by RTE as a lower back problem) having been replaced just after the hour mark in the Clarets' Premier League win over Southampton at the weekend.

"I'm not over anxious, if come Tursday or Friday he's (Hendrick) not training then yeah".

The rest of the squad did train with both Daryl Murphy and John O'Shea taking part and Keane said that he feels Ireland are in good shape generally going into the game.

"I was fortunate to play in 94 and my first World Cup watching was 82, it was fantastic".

"But the Danish lads will be saying exactly the same thing". This is what we are born to do.

Keane is adamant he can't get unduly concerned about Hendrick and his Burnley teammate Stephen Ward sitting out training for the second day in a row.

Roy Keane says a return to club management is "on the backburner" as he prepares for the Republic of Ireland's World Cup play-off against Denmark. Obviously [Christian] Eriksen is a really big player for them. "The really good players will get that anyway as they create it themselves".

"We know that they can turn up", he said when asked whether the team has proven its ability to perform in the most important games.

'We've come up against good players before and have found a way to stop them, that's one of the challenges we face here.

Centre-half Ciaran Clark also believes that the Irish defence can cope with Eriksen. They're big and strong, have good experience in their team and good energy.

"Meyler got a yellow card in the last minute [against Wales] but I think if the ball is there to be won, then you have to go for it".

"It's all about being organised and staying focused and working hard".
