Alan Kelly allays Shay Given fitness fears

Republic of Ireland goalkeeping coach Alan Kelly insists Shay Given will be fit for the Euro 2012 opener against Croatia on Sunday.

"He's had injury problems and he's been managed on a daily business but Shay will be fine. I've no worries about it," said Kelly.

Kelly added that goalkeeping preparation "has changed massively" since he was in the Republic squad at the 1994 World Cup finals in the US.
