SHANE Supple has had to pull out of the Republic of Ireland Under 21s squad to face Sweden this week with a shoulder injury.

After being delighted at winning his first call up to Don Given's squad, Blues keeper Supple has had to withdraw so he can be treated for the problem at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town team-mates Owen Garvan and Billy Clarke will join up with the squad and are also in the party to play England in Cork next week.

Garvan celebrated his call up by being named in the Championship team of the week following his performance in Town's 2-1 home win over Preston on Saturday.
