Burnley midfielder Hendrick excited for Ireland milestone

Jeff Hendrick is excited to win 50 caps for the Republic of Ireland.

The Burnley midfielder will reach the half century mark if he appears in Thursday's Euro2020 qualifier with Switzerland in Dublin.

Speaking of the milestone, Hendrick said: "I always say as a kid my dream was to pull on the Ireland jersey and play for my country and, all going well, hopefully I can get to 50. It is a big thing to me and to my family.

"I've enjoyed it. To play nearly 50 times for your country has been brilliant. It has been tough as well at times - we have had some not-so-good games - but I try to remember all the positives from each game and the results that we've got, and there have been some very memorable ones."
