James McCarthy seems to be firmly back in Everton boss Ronald Koeman’s plans. After an injury-plagued season, the Irish midfielder put in an impressive performance in Everton’s 2-1 win over Arsenal on Tuesday night.

2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Stadionul Zimbru, Chisinau, Moldova 9/10/2016 Moldova vs Republic of Ireland Ireland's of Moldova

The Republic of Ireland produced a performance against Moldova that was, at least, better than their display against Georgia on Thursday.

Tougher tests will come …

Twitter Reaction: An Awful Performance, But The Toon Are Loving Daryl!

Anyone that wasn’t in Thurles on Monday evening was likely glued to Ireland’s opening World Cup qualifier against Serbia in Belgrade. Woeful defending allowed Jeff Hendrick put the Boys in Green ahead with just three minutes on the clock.
