Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has admitted that Jonathan Walters is doubtful to play in Saturday's Euro2016 clash with Belgium.

The Stoke forward revealed last night that he had re-aggravated his Achilles strain during the opening minutes of the draw against Sweden and the 32-year-old is now struggling to be available for this weekend's trip to Bordeaux.

The Irish squad didn't train today after O'Neill decided to cancel training in the wake of the squad's exertions at the Stade de France.

"Jon Walters, obviously, would be the main concern. I’d say he would be pretty doubtful for the second game coming up," he told FAI TV.
