Ward scores in his debut for the Republic of Ireland (video)

Wolves utility man Stephen Ward was surprisingly picked by Republic Of Ireland coach Trapattoni to play as left back from start against Northern Ireland tonight. 

Ward said before the match that it was a long time held dream of his to play for his country. And guess what. After 24 minutes this happened:

Yes Siree! Wardy scores the first Irish goal. That must have felt really nice for him and I’ll bet family and friends were there watching him aswell.

Foley also started in the game, at the inner midfield, and as you could see on the clip Robbie Keane scored aswell. He actually scored a brace.  Keogh substituted Robbie after the hour.

Gorman played for an hour for Northern Ireland and our hero Stephen Hunt substituted Foley after 72 minutes and almost scored on a cross from…Ward and almost scored from a set piece in the dying minutes of the game that the Republic managed to win by 5-0. All Wolves in Ireland, eh!

  1. Ward played extremely well upfront with Fletcher for the last few games, he is much more useful to us as back up striker than at the back… hopefully this will have been noted as well…

    • A utility player hard as steel. I’ll bet he could play a better game as a central defender than most of our current players in that position aswell. 😆
