EUROPA LEAGUE UPDATE
The team trained yesterday morning before flying out to Bucharest in the late afternoon and they arrived at their hotel without any delays. With a huge level of national interest in the game in Romania there were TV cameras present to capture the teams' arrival at the airport and also at the hotel.
Following breakfast this morning the players took a short stroll around the surrounding areas of their hotel. Manager Jeff Kenna and some of the players met with the Irish media at lunchtime. Though he has a fully fit squad to choose from Jeff Kenna is unlikely to name his starting 11 until tomorrow evening but he reported that he has a full squad to choose from.
The team will spend the afternoon watching DVD's and familiarising themselves further with their Romanian opposition. The Pat's squad will take part in a full training session at the Steaua Bucharest Stadium later this evening.
