Keith Andrews named FAI Player of the Year

Christof Koepsel

Midfielder Keith Andrews has missed the last few Bolton Wanderers matches through injury but that hasn't stopped him from picking up an important award from his national side. Andrews, 33 years old, has been named the Senior International Player of the Year at the 23rd Three FAI International Football Awards.

Keith Andrews has 35 caps for the Republic of Ireland over the course of his career including three in the 2012 UEFA European Championships, a pair (so far) for World Cup 2014 qualifying, and seven for Euro 2012 qualifying (which ultimately saw the Boys In Green reach the tournament. Andrews also has three goals to his name and is the captain of the side.

Other awards handed out included Wolverhampton's Kevin Doyle for goal of the year (against Kazakhstan in qualifying) and Wigan's James McCarthy for Republic of Ireland young player of the year.

Well done, Keith. Ireland continue their World Cup qualification campaign with a pair of fixtures on March 22 and 26 against Sweden away and Austria at home, respectively. They are third in their group behind Germany and Sweden, sitting on six points compared to Sweden's seven.
