Murphy heads to EURO 2016 while Oar, Yorwerth and Connolly also earn international caps

Daryl Murphy helped fire the Republic of Ireland to the European Championships with a 3-1 aggregate victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina on Monday. 

The Town striker won a penalty for former Blue, Jonathan Walters, to fire home the first of his double at the Aviva Stadium, with the Daryl featuring for 55 minutes of the tie. 

Having been an unused substitute in the 3-0 victory over Kyrgyzstan on Thursday, Aussie winger Tommy Oar was brought on at the beginning of the second-half to help his country climb to the top of their World Cup 2018 qualifying group with a 4-0 win away at Bangladesh.

Defender Josh Yorwerth- currently on loan at Crawley- started as the Wales U21’s continued their unbeaten start to UEFA U21 Championship qualifying with a 1-1 draw with Romania, while goalkeeper Michael Crowe was an unused substitute in the same game.

Meanwhile, Dylan Connolly also started for his country, as he played 83 minutes for Ireland’s U21 side in a 0-0 draw with Norway in Waterford.
