IRELAND BOSS Giovanni Trapattoni will undergo a stomach operation this afternoon, according to the Football Association of Ireland.

The FAI said this lunchtime that the 71-year-old manager had been complaining overnight of abdominal pain, having been hospitalised in the early hours of Tuesday morning with nausea and vomiting.

It is understood that the pain is being caused by the rupture of scar tissue left behind from a previous surgery the Italian has undergone.

The surgery will take place in the Mater Hospital, where Trapattoni is staying, at 3pm. His illness has been attributed to undercooked shellfish eaten by the manager in Italy at the weekend.

Earlier the FAI had said the manager’s overnight recovery had been “slightly behind expectations” and that he was to be sent for x-rays this morning.

Trapattoni’s assistant, Marco Tardelli, will take charge of the Ireland team for tonight’s friendly against Argentina in his absence.

The manager’s health concerns are a worry ahead of the national side’s forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers, which kick off with an away game against Armenia in three weeks’ time, on September 3.

Trapattoni’s first experience of the new Aviva Stadium will now come on Wednesday 7 September when the side face Andorra.

MARCO TARDELLI will take charge of the Ireland team for tonight’s opening international at the Aviva Stadium, after the FAI said Giovanni Trapattoni would not recover from his suspected food poisoning in time for the tie.

In a statement this morning the FAI said that the 71-year-old Trapattoni’s “progress overnight has been slightly behind expectations, and after being seen by his consultant, he will undergo further investigations, including x-rays this morning.”

Trapattoni’s assistant Tardelli will thus take charge of the Ireland team for tonight’s friendly against Argentina, which is the first time the international side will play at their new home.

Trap was brought to the Mater Hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning by the FAI’s team doctor, Dr Alan Byrne, after complaining of vomiting and nausea.

The FAI said Trapattoni had attributed his illness to shellfish he ate in Italy before he left for Dublin.

The Italian’s absence means that neither side tonight will be managed by a full-time head ocoach, with Argentina under the temporary care of Sergio Batista following the departure of Diego Maradona.

The teams for tonight’s game have meanwhile been finalised and will line out as follows.

Ireland (4-4-2): Given; McShane, Dunne, O’Shea, Kilbane; Fahey, Andrews, Green, Duff; Doyle, Keane.

Argentina (4-3-3): Romero; Burdisso, Demichelis, Samuel, Heinze; Banega, Mascherano, Gago; Di María, Higuaín, Messi.
