Darron Gibson out of Republic of Ireland squad

Darron Gibson has played seven games for Everton since joining the club from Manchester United and he is yet to taste defeat with his new club

Everton midfielder Darron Gibson has withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad to face the Czech Republic next week because of a knee injury.

Gibson, who joined Everton from Manchester United in January, had been included in Giovanni Trapattoni’s 26-man squad for the friendly at the Aviva Stadium on February 29, along with Toffees’ team-mates Seamus Coleman and Shane Duffy

However, the Premier League club have announced Gibson, 24, has sustained a knee injury in training, the seriousness of which is unknown.

Gibson’s injury is a worry for Everton boss David Moyes – although the club do not have a game until March 3, when they travel to QPR, given their scheduled clash against Liverpool this weekend will be played at a later date due to the Reds’ participation in the Carling Cup final against Cardiff.
