Stoke defender Wilson: Everton's Gibson will play for Ireland again

Stoke City defender Marc Wilson is confident Everton midfielder Darron Gibson will return to the Republic of Ireland fold.

Gibson last week rejected a call for this Friday's World Cup qualifier in Kazakhstan.

"I know Darron quite well. I think he will be back again," said the Stoke defender.

"I hope he does because he is a good player and I think he could be really good for the team.

"I could see why he would be disappointed (that he didn't play at Euro 2012).

"He is a good player, but the manager selects the team and you have to respect his decision and just get on with it."
