Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot is eyeing a Republic of Ireland call.

Elliot made his Premier League debut in victory over Southampton on Sunday.

"I've played a few games this year in Europe and the cups, which has been nice," he reflected. "But to play in the Premier League, that's the top one, the one you want to put against your name. I've finally got the opportunity.

"I just wanted to show everyone what I could do.

"The gaffer said make sure you play your game and don't try and do anything you wouldn't do."
