Robbie Brady 'delighted' with goalscoring Ireland debut

The talented winger started his international career with a goal and an assist, and then told that he thinks he can do even better
Debutant Robbie Brady earned the man-of-the-match award in Ireland's 4-1 win over Oman at Craven Cottage on Tuesday, with the Manchester United starlet having a hand in two goals and scoring a blistering volley from the edge of the area.

Speaking to after the game, Brady declared himself pleased with his first international cap, but felt that he still has more to offer Giovanni Trapattoni's side.

"I'm delighted with the way it went, with a goal and an assist, but I thought I could have done more," Brady said. "I wasn't disappointed, but I felt I could have done a bit more. Maybe got on the ball a bit more, all-round really."

The 20-year-old winger was drafted into the Irish senior squad at the weekend, and said that he was made feel welcome by temporary captain Kevin Doyle, who helped him find his feet among the more senior players.

"I've gotten on well with everyone," Brady said. "Kevin Doyle is a great bloke, him and the rest of the guys are great. They've made me feel part of the group."

Brady is the record goalscorer for Ireland under-21s and continued his international run of form with a goal from outside the box in the 23rd minute to put Ireland 2-0 up against Oman.

Despite making his senior debut for the Boys in Green, Brady has yet to play in a competitive game for his club Manchester United, and may be forced to move on loan again this season following a successful spell at Hull City last term.

"Hopefully I can push on and keep playing," Brady told

"I don't want to come in and doss about. I want to stay playing [for Ireland], so I need to be playing as many club games as I can. If that means I need to take a loan move, I will. We'll see what happens. I'd just like to play as much football as I can."
