The squad have been in Ireland since Saturday and they will finish off the full week’s training in Ireland with a game against Bohemian at Dalymount Park on Saturday – a 2:00 pm kickoff.
As well as a fitness and training camp, it’s being used by Rafa and the coaches as an opportunity to do some bonding of the squad with new arrivals Matz Sels, Dwight Gayle, Matt Ritchie, Jesus Gamez and Isaac Hayden are all participating.
