Robinho in anyway?

That's the message from Daniel Taylor:
Ireland was due to replace Robinho on the left of a three-man attack but was hurt during City's final practice match before travelling to London for their overnight stop.

A protective cast was put on the ankle and City's medical staff will send him for an x-ray to assess whether there is ligament damage. As Ireland is almost certainly out of the match, that could mean a reprieve for Robinho as Hughes does not have any other left-sided attackers.

It's a real blow that Ireland's out, particularly if it puts him out of the trip to Hamburg on Thursday. But with Robinho in the side we'd still have a strong team. Much hangs on which fit center forward Hughes picks. I'm hoping for Bozhinov or Bellamy. I still think we'll lose though.
