MURPH LEADS INTERNATIONAL BLUES

9 October 2015

Daryl plays part in Ireland's win over world champions Germany

Daryl Murphy was handed a starting role as the Republic of Ireland stunned world champions Germany in Dublin last night. 

The Town striker picked up his 17th cap as Martin O’Neill’s side secured a famous 1-0 victory in their 2016 European Championship qualifier. 

The Republic are now certain of at least a Play-Off place and could book a guaranteed spot in France next summer if they beat Poland in their last qualifier on Sunday. 

Murph played 65 minutes against the Germans before Shane Long, who scored the winner, replaced him. David McGoldrick was an unused substitute for the Irish. 

Christophe Berra remained on the bench as Scotland drew 2-2 with Poland, a result that ends their hopes of qualifying for the finals. 

Elsewhere Tommy Oar picked up his 27th cap for Australia in their 2-0 defeat to Jordan in a 2018 World Cup qualifier while Ainsley Maitland-Niles scored in England U19s’ 2-0 win over
Macedonia in their 2016 European Championship qualifier. 

Kevin Bru has also been international action this week, playing the 90 minutes in Mauritius’ 5-2 defeat against Kenya in their 2018 World Cup first qualifying round clash. The second-leg is on Sunday.
