Westwood withdraws from Ireland squad

12 November 2015

Keiren Westwood has withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad with an ankle injury.

The Wednesday goalkeeper was selected in the final squad for the Euro 2016 play-off qualifier over two legs with Bosnia-Herzegovina.

With a place in the tournament at stake, the Republic are set to travel to Zenica for the opening game on Friday, before playing the second leg in Dublin on Monday.

A minor ankle injury suffered in training will see Westwood play no further part for the Republic over the next two weeks.

The 31-year-old will now return to Hillsborough but is expected to make a recovery in time for the Owls’ Sky Bet Championship clash against Huddersfield after the break.
