Noel King: Calls O'Brien up to his squad

O'Brien is in Noel King's squad to face the Dutch at Tallaght Stadium on Wednesday, February 6.

The 20-year-old Dubliner has recently been deputising for the injured Jake Buxton at centre-back for the Rams.

His international call comes on the back of three of his club-mates - fellow centre-half Richard Keogh, midfielder Jeff Hendrick and striker Conor Sammon - being drafted into the senior Ireland squad.

"It's pleasing to see another one of our players receive international recognition and after battling back from a few long-term injuries already in his career. Mark thoroughly deserves this call-up," said Derby boss Nigel Clough.

heard them all talking on Sky last night about how Liverpool could not find a decent striker to buy and ended up panicking and buying Balotelli at the last minute. They all forgot Liverpool found Loic Remy and for some unfathomable reason rejected him at the last minute due to some mysterious medical issue. Liverpool's loss is Chelsea's gain.
