Sunderland's Reid remains hopeful of Ireland recall

Sunderland midfielder Andy Reid hasn't given up hope of returning to the Republic of Ireland squad.

Reid said: "Of course I want to play for Ireland and of course I want to play in the World Cup Finals. It has been a dream of mine since watching the 1990 World Cup.

"To get there it needs to be a case of me getting my head down, performing well, staying in the Sunderland team and hopefully us getting some good results and enjoying the second half of the season and enjoy moving up the table.

"The further we are up the Premier League table and the better I perform, perhaps the better chance I have of playing for Ireland."
