Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane has been ruled out of Tuesday's crucial 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Austria. Keane suffered a calf injury in Friday's 0-0 draw against Sweden in Stockholm and was forced to withdraw from the squad after a scan on the problem today. The LA Galaxy forward, who has 123 caps for Ireland and is his country's all-time leading scorer, was present at today's training session, but did not join in with the group.
