Damien Duff is having his best season ever at Newcastle, and has 3 goals this season, after getting his 3rd goal after just 64 seconds at The Hawthorns on Saturday.
Damien Duff – had another good game on Saturday
And Damien’s improved form has not gone unnoticed by the Ireland management, and Marco Tardelli, who is assistant manager to Giovanni Trapattoni, has been impressed.
Marco said today:
“I have spoken to him and, for me, Damien Duff is a very good player and he is in great form.”
“It’s very important because he is a player with good experience. We need Damien Duff and the young players need Damien Duff.”
After just 64 seconds against WBA, Duff found himself clean through on goal, when a through ball from the impressive Ameobi, was not cut out by the WBA defenders, and the Irishman hit the ball first time past Scott Carson, when it would have been so easy to miss.
That goal gave Newcastle a terrific start to the vital relegation 6 pointer on Saturday.
Duff will be playing against Georgia tomorrow night in the World Cup qualifier in Dublin, where he was born, so let’s hope he doesn’t get injured, that’s the main thing for Newcastle fans.
The last thing we want right now is any of our players participating in the Internationals to return injured – that would be too much.
