Doyle dropped by text

Kevin Doyle is looking for an explanation from Giovanni Trapattoni after being dropped from the Republic of Ireland squad by text.

Doyle, who had been included in the preliminary 23-man squad, believes he deserved better than a simple message saying he was not required for the World Cup double header against Sweden and Austria.

It marked a massive fall from grace for the 29-year-old Wolves striker, who captained the side on his last international start against Oman, days after netting a last-gasp winner in the World Cup qualifier in Kazakhstan.

"I was very disappointed to come in after the game to a text message saying I wasn't to travel to Ireland to join up with the squad," Doyle said on his club's official website. "I have been in every squad when I have been fit for seven-and-a-half years so it was disappointing.

"I thought I might get a phone call but it wasn't to be and I haven't spoken to the manager about it. Maybe he will speak to me about it in the future and for now I just have to get on with it.

"It was disappointing to get the text message telling me not to travel particularly after such a good game with Wolves [the 2-1 victory over Bristol City] and you quickly go from one extreme to another."

Doyle feels he has been harshly treated, but he has no plans to walk away from the international game.

"I've been in squads for seven-and-a-half years and certainly never took it for granted and have always found it a great pleasure and privilege to play for my country," he added. "I feel I have always given 100% in terms of showing the right attitude and dedication with Ireland in every training session and every match as I do here at Wolves.

"I will carry on doing that and hopefully get another opportunity to do that again in the future. I'm not going to cry about it and just get on with it and hopefully get back in the squad as soon as I can."

Ireland assistant manager Marco Tardelli has assured Doyle that he still has a future at international level.

"We love all the players who have given us many successes and all players deserve the same things," he said. "The boss can't call all the players.

"But for us, it's not finished, the time for Kevin Doyle. We know he is a good player and we know, in the future, it is possible for him to come back."
