Fulham's Healy can't explain international scoring record

Fulham striker David Healy admits he cannot understand why he is more prolific at international level with Northern Ireland than with his club.

"I just can't put my finger on it," Healy told the Daily Mail. "I've been asked by previous managers why I score so many international goals against supposedly better defenders, but I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about it.

"Confidence is everything for strikers and when I turn up I'm expecting to score - and I think the whole country is expecting me to score."

He added: "If I hadn't scored for Fulham already there would be people saying I'm a waste of money, or I'm out of my depth, or I can't make the step up. Fortunately, I was bought on the cheap. I don't have a £5m price tag."
