Watch: Cillian Sheridan Proves Once Again Why He Deserves An Ireland Call-Up

Speaking to Pundit Arena’s Irish football podcast, The Mixer, a couple of weeks ago Jagiellonia Bialystok striker Cillian Sheridan put his brilliant form in Poland’s top flight down to the momentum he had carried through from playing in Cyprus. 

Looking at his form in Poland in isolation, though, it is clear the Cavan native has adapted particularly well to the Ekstraklasa, having helped his team to a promising position at the summit of the table.

With five goals in his first nine games for the club, Sheridan’s confidence was obviously going to be high going into this weekend’s clash against Wisla Krakow.

He did not fail to deliver either on Saturday with a crucial first half strike, which was followed up by a helping hand in the build-up to Jagiellonia’s second, which was stuck away by Dmytro Khomchenovskyi.

Following this 2-0 victory, the Polish side now have four games remaining in the league and are well poised to claim the club’s first ever title and secure Champions League qualifying round games next season.

Should Sheridan keep sticking them away it should also only be a matter of time before Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill comes calling, with his forward options severely limited at present.
