We were certainly delighted when we saw Daryl Murphy score his first goal ever for Ireland after 23 caps last night and it was some goal as he powered a header past the goalkeeper from a corner with just 10 minutes left in the game to get the 2-2 draw.
Newcastle fans took to Twitter to express their delight for Daryl.
