Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman will return home ahead of the trip to face Hungary after failing to recover from a hamstring injury. Everton right-back Coleman came into the Ireland training camp with the hamstring injury and had been working hard to be fit for the international friendly in Budapest on June 8. But following further assessment this week, the Ireland captain has been sent home as a precaution. The rest of the Ireland squad travel to Budapest from their training base in Girona, Spain on Sunday.
