    Lapira definitely the worst to be capped for us in the modern era given that he never played at any professional level of note - the Norwegian second division was as far as he went.

    Joe O'Cearuill may be our worst multi-cap international given that he won two. Only played a handful of games in League 1, 2 and the LoI in his club career.

    But neither of those won a competitive cap. I'd maybe nominate Alan O'Brien as the poorest player to win a competitive cap, I think Staunton capped him in a few qualifiers, he was fast but otherwise hopeless.

    Worst player to play for us in a finals tournament? Obviously the standard of player is higher here. Maybe Paul Green or Simon Cox?

    Have a sneaky suspicion Georgie Kelly could become a really unlikely success story for Ireland in the coming year or two.

    He's a big fella, good hold up play, a good finisher, and good option from set pieces. What he lacks is a burst of pace, but with Ireland style of play, won't exactly be required to burst at defences on the counter where the likes of Parrott, Obafemi and co will have that area covered.

    He seems to be banging them in
    The real deal will be when the season starts. If he scores routinely at championship level with a newly promoted team then we will know

    He’s not quick by any stretch but he’s faster than he looks, he’s not a Conor Salmon or a Patrick Hoban or a James Collins

    Caleb Folan was a bit ****, but he did get an assist for Robbie's goal against Italy. Lapira the worst of all time and Green the most limited player ever to be a regular starter.

    On the bench for the season opener against Swansea today, but apparently that's because he was ill during the week.

    So the mystery of if he's actually any good or not will have to last another week.

    Going by twitter he's having a good game. Almost scored an overhead kick only for the keeper to pull off a good save ten minutes after scoring, and early in the second half denied again by a finger tip save.

    I'd say that put a spring in his step.

    First Championship goal tonight.

    First goal in six appearances, but all off the bench so it's not far off a goal every 90 minutes actually
