Anthony Pilkington: Hoping of Ireland debut at Wembley

The Canaries winger has recovered from the latest of a run of niggling injuries to boost Chris Hughton's attacking options for Sunday's Premier League game with West Brom.

Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni is due to watch Pilkington and team-mate Wes Hoolahan at Carrow Road, and the former admits the prospect of a chance to run out at Wembley would make a sweet end to what has been a frustrating campaign.

He said: "To play at Wembley is massive for any footballer - it's one of the best stadiums to play at, in front of the English fans in England v Ireland would be great."

Norwich are three points clear of the relegation zone and with their campaign finishing at Manchester City next weekend, Pilkington maintains everyone is determined to secure their safety against the Baggies.

He said: "The boys have picked themselves up, the staff have picked themselves up - we have just been training out there at Carrow Road and the mood has been really good.

"Swansea winning was a great result for us, but we have to concentrate on ourselves and make sure we do things right.

"We believe we have the quality to go out there on Sunday and finish the job off."
