Striker knows this is his final opportunity to compete at a major tournament as Ireland look to book place at France 2016

Daryl Murphy is hoping to play his part for the Republic of Ireland this weekend, as he looks to finally compete in a major tournament.

Martin O’Neil’s side could qualify for France 2016 if results go their way, with Town strikers Daryl and David McGoldrick both included in the 27-man squad for Group D qualifiers against Germany and Poland.

The Town forward- last season’s leading scorer- is perhaps a little more desperate than others to reach the European Championships,  after admitting this is his final opportunity to play in a major tournament.

“I’ll hope to play my part, as we’ve got two huge fixtures coming up and those are the games you want to be involved in as a player

“We’ve got ourselves into a good position and hopefully we can go out and win the games we have to.

“Realistically, this is my last chance to play at a major tournament for my country and myself and the rest of the boys want to do everything we possibly can to get there.

“As I’ve said, we are in a great position and it’s in our own hands now. We know what we’ve got to do and hopefully we can go out there, get the wins and get ourselves to France 2016.”
