Birmingham winger Fahey hoping to build on Ireland strike

Birmingham City midfielder Keith Fahey hopes to build on his matchwinning performance for the Republic of Ireland on Friday.

The Republic of Ireland midfielder came off the bench to fire his side to a narrow Euro 2012 qualifier victory over Armenia in Yerevan on Friday night with his first senior goal for his country on his fourth appearance.

Fahey said: "It gives me great confidence. It's good to think that I am in his [Trapattoni's] thoughts anyway.

"There are other players he could have put on in front of me, so when I got the shout, I was delighted to get on.

"With the internationals, there are more games, you are involved more and your name is out there more, more people notice you.

"But this season, I will be looking to improve and try to get the best out of myself because I don't think I have shown the best of me yet."
