Arter awaits scan but could be out of the Euros

Harry Arter was injured in training with the Republic of Ireland squad yesterday in Cork. While many media stations are confirming that Harry has left the squad to be assessed, it is not 100 per cent clear whether he is out of Martin O'Neil's squad which will be announced before 11pm tonight.
Let's wait and see on Arter shall we.
The Republic of Ireland are currently playing Belarus and Arter's omission is a big blow having done so well in the recent friendly with Holland. Eunan O'Kane also awaits patiently on the bench in that game and it is possible that AFCB will only have Artur Boruc going out to the Euros as an AFCB representative playing for Poland.

Arter is said to have a thigh injury and it comes after he missed several games at the end of the season with an Achilles problem. The fact that it is not the same injury may be slightly encouraging but the Republic of Ireland won't be able to afford any passengers. How highly Arter is valued by Martin O'Neil is shown though in that the manager wants to speak with Arter's consultants this evening. Even if Arter does not go to the Euros it looks like he will be central to plans after the competition, especially if Martin O'Neil is still the manager.
