The Republic of Ireland have a fully-fit squad ahead of their vital game with Spain on Thursday, after Richard Dunne and Darron Gibson returned to action.
The Irish must avoid defeat to the defending champions to avoid elimination from the tournament before their final group game against Italy on Monday.
Dunne, who sat out Monday's session with blistered feet, was able to take a full part on Tuesday, as Giovanni Trapattoni finalises his plans to take on the world champions in Gdansk.
Meanwhile, Darron Gibson also joined the squad in their preparations at the Municipal stadium after the results of a scan on his troublesome thigh muscle were described as 'encouraging'.
Trapattoni's men will be determined to put on a show, after the disappointing display on Sunday when they lost 3-1 to Croatia in Poznan.
