The Irish Football Association has confirmed that striker Robbie Keane has been declared fit to travel with the Republic of Ireland squad for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands.

The LA Galaxy striker has been struggling with an Achilles injury and sat out Friday night's 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Germany.

However, the 32-year-old trained on Sunday without any problems and is set to stay with Giovanni Trapattoni's squad as they look to get their qualifying campaign back on course.

However, fellow striker Andy Keogh has been left out after suffering a concussion following a collision in training.

The Millwall frontman, who netted Ireland's consolation goal at the Aviva Stadium on Friday, will not travel with the squad and is set to return to his club.
