Leicester defender Sean St. Ledger is set to return to the npower Championship club for treatment due to a hamstring injury.
Despite sustaining the injury during the Foxes' 2-0 home win over Bristol City on Saturday, St. Ledger reported with the rest of Giovanni Trapattoni's Republic of Ireland squad the following day.
The 27-year-old centre-half underwent a scan, which confirmed he will take no part in the games against Germany on Friday and the Faroe Islands next Tuesday.
St. Ledger will spend the two-week international break receiving treatment but he is already a doubt for the trip to Birmingham on October 20 when Leicester resume league action.
