Paul McShane will not face Greece on Wednesday night

Hull defender Paul McShane has withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad for Wednesday night's friendly against Greece through injury.

McShane had a scan on a calf injury earlier in the week, but has been forced to admit defeat and has followed Stoke striker Jon Walters in heading home.

A spokesman for the Football Association of Ireland said: "Paul McShane has withdrawn from the squad to face Greece in Aviva Stadium tomorrow night due to a calf injury. He will return to his club later today for treatment. No replacement has been called up."
