Iran v Ireland
15 November 2001
Roy Keane is a major doubt for Ireland's World Cup playoff against Iran, Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson said tonight.
Keane has missed United's last five matches with a knee injury, although media reports suggested he could recover in time for the two-legged playoff.
But after a virtual United reserve side had lost 4-0 away to Arsenal in the third round of the Worthington Cup tonight, Ferguson said: "He is doubtful.
"He felt it again (in training) on Saturday. He will have more physiotherapy, but he's very doubtful."
RTE has secured the rights to show live coverage of Ireland's World Cup away leg playoff against Iran. The match, which will be played on Thursday 15 November in Tehran, will be shown on Network 2 at approximately 1.30pm. The programme will be presented by Bill O'Herlihy, with analysis from John Giles, Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady. Match commentary will be provided by George Hamilton and Jim Beglin.
Coverage of Saturday's first leg at Lansdowne Road will start at 5pm on Network 2.
RTE Radio One will also be broadcasting live commentary on both games, which overseas supporters can listen to on the RTE website.
Minute-by-minute matchtrackers will also be available here on RTE Sport Online.

Confirmed today. The first game IS on live on Setanta in Australia.
In Sydney it's on at 6 venues (Kelly's, The Charing Cross, The Illonois, The Aussie Rules Club, The Harp and somewhere else I've forgotten). Admission is $25 and the bad news is that kick-off time is wait for it... 5am.
Ah well them's the breaks.
No news on the second game yet.
I predict the biggest simultaneous outbreak of flu throughout the the country on thursday the 15th, not seen since the summer of 1994.
