Video: He’s Done it Again! Daryl Murphy Doubles Ireland’s Lead With Impressive Header

It took Daryl Murphy just two minute to score the Republic of Ireland’s opener against Moldova tonight… and it’s taken him 20 minutes to make it 2-0.

The Nottingham Forrest strike capitalised on some slack defending from the Moldova defenders in the opening five minutes to tap in from Stephen Ward’s long-throw.

And while Murphy’s first strike won’t be winning any goal of the season competitions, his second was far more impressive as the 34-year-old headed the ball into the net from Ward’s cross:

 

Murphy has spent the majority of his career in the English Championship, however, he also spent three years at Celtic back in 2010.

If Ireland can hold onto their early lead it will set up a mouth-watering clash with Wales on Monday night, with the winner securing second place and a likely spot in the World Cup qualifying playoffs.

Will Murphy complete what would be an unlikely hat-trick to finish off Moldova?
