Andy Reid: Back in the Ireland squad for the first time since November 2006

Reid has returned to the Ireland squad for World Cup qualifiers in Germany on Friday and against Kazakhstan in Dublin next Tuesday.

The 31-year-old won his last cap against San Marino in November 2006, when he scored in a 5-0 victory, before falling out of favour under former boss Giovanni Trapattoni.

And the former Charlton, Tottenham and Sunderland player is delighted to be involved again for his country following a good run of form with Forest.

Reid said: "After the break that I've had it's really, really good to be back amongst the group and preparing for an international game again, because I suppose there were probably times when I didn't think it might happen.

"I feel I've been playing really well, so I was in with an opportunity of being selected if it was being picked on merit and on performances.

"As I say, I feel I've been playing well."

Ireland v Kazakhstan is live on Sky Sports on Tuesday, 15 October

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
