Republic of Ireland under-21 manager Stephen Kenny has been admitted to hospital in Sweden after falling ill shortly after his side’s Euro 2021 qualification win in Kalmar.
The squad were due to travel back to Dublin on Wednesday following their 3-1 victory over the Swedes when Kenny became unwell, and returned without the coach.
The FAI have confirmed the 47-year-old opted to remain in Sweden for treatment at a local hospital after being examined by the FAI’s medical team on Wednesday.
Ireland ran out 3-1 winners thanks to two goals from Troy Parrott and one from Conor Masterson to maintain their 100% record at the top of Group I.
“Republic of Ireland Under 21 boss Stephen Kenny has remained in Sweden after becoming unwell on Wednesday as his squad made their way home from Tuesday night’s European Championship qualifier in Kalmar,” read an FAI statement.
“Stephen was examined by the FAI’s medical staff and decided to stay behind for treatment at a local hospital.
“Stephen expects to be discharged in the coming days and is looking forward to beginning preparations ahead of the two European Under-21 Championship qualifiers next month.”
