Murphy's Ireland ambition

08 February 2010 02:17
Ipswich striker Daryl Murphy is hoping that a run of goals for Town can help resurrect his international career. Murphy rejoined Roy Keane at Portman Road last week with a loan move from Sunderland and took just 22 seconds to open the scoring against Middlesbrough on Saturday. He had not scored for 45 games before the weekend but harbours ambitions of returning to the Republic of Ireland picture after nearly two years out of the squad. He told the club`s official website: "I know my goals record doesn`t look good but I haven`t had a chance to play up front for a while. "I`ve spent a lot of time out on the left wing and I think I have been wasted out wide. "The manager has said that he wants to use me through the middle and I`m hoping to score goals here. That can only help me at international level."
