Ireland loses Keane for WCup qualifier vs Germany

  •  

DUBLIN (AP) - Ireland captain Robbie Keane has been ruled out of Friday's World Cup qualifier against Germany because of an Achilles tendon injury.

This is the latest blow to the Irish team that already has lost Sean St. Ledger, Richard Dunne, Glen Whelan, James McClean and Kevin Doyle over the last two weeks.

Keane, a forward for the Los Angeles Galaxy, missed training Thursday. The Irish soccer federation said on its Twitter feed he could be ready for Tuesday's Group C match at the Faeroe Islands.

Ireland beat Kazakhstan 2-1 in its only group match so far. Germany leads the group after two straight wins.
