Brady vows to carry on practising


Ireland defender Robbie Brady says he will carrying on practising his set-pieces ahead of this summer's Euro 2016 finals.

The Dubliner has vowed to repay Ireland boss Martin O'Neill's faith in his dead-ball ability by working on his free-kicks for the next two months.

"My job in the team at the minute - not my only job - is to take set-pieces when they come about, so it's vitally important for me to be on point, especially going into such a tournament like this when that could be the difference," he said.

"If I just put it in there and keep putting it in good areas, then we have got a great chance of scoring a goal.

"I'll be practising now until the summer and hopefully I can put in a few good ones and a few to remember."

Brady proved his set-piece worth in Friday's 1-0 friendly victory over Switzerland at the Aviva Stadium, when his second-minute corner was helped on by Shane Duffy for Ciaran Clark to score the only goal of the game.

"That's my job, to put it in that area, but all credit goes to the two lads. Big Duffy is a massive presence in there and he has been putting his head on things since I've known him," the 24-year-old continued.

"I knew if I put it in a good area, he can get a touch on it and get a chance. Clarky was on the move at the same time and he did well to put it in."
