Wayne Andrews played a huge part in helping the Repubic of Ireland in their 4-0 win over Estonia in a Euro play-off game.
The Blues midfielder, on loan from Blackburn Rovers, also played a part in another goal when provided a free kick, which was saved but followed by Robbie Keane.
Former Ipswich forward Jon Walters achieved one of his dreams when he netted for the Irish and a second by Keane completed the scoring.
Walters, now with Stoke City, revealed during his Town days how his ambition was to play for the Republic as a tribute to his Dublin-born mother.
It was another big moment for former Town players when Jordan Rhodes made his debut for the senior Scotland side after going on as a sub in their 2-1 win over Cyprus.
Rhodes has been in phenomenal scoring form for Huddersfield this season with 14 goals to his name already, and many Town fans believe it was a mistake for Ipswich to sell him.

  • Great to see Wayne score for the Irish who surely are now through to the Euros.
    Let’s hope he can reproduce such form for Town next week against Forest.

  • Regarding Jordan Rhodes. I still rue the day that Roy Keane sold him to Hudderfield. I still don’t know what happened on that pre-season trip to the ROI, He was our 20 a season man in the making and we let him slip through our fingers. Hudderfields gain, our loss.
