O'Shea pulls out

John O' Shea has withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad to face Spain in New York on Tuesday following the death of his uncle.

O'Shea is one of nine members of the squad who will not make the trip with Shane Long and Aiden McGeady excused because they are getting married, Marc Wilson to undergo surgery to remove a metal plate from his leg, Glenn Whelan rested and Keiren Westwood, Wes Hoolahan and Jon Walters injured.
