Stephen Ward

Ward has emerged as something of a favourite of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni in the final months of the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign, nailing down the right back slot and proving himself to be a useful attacking option with his forward bursts.

A disastrous season for his club side Wolves does not seem to have affected Ward’s form in Ireland colours, with this excitement at the prospect of playing in his first major championship clearly setting his pulse racing.

“The last time we qualified for a major tournament was back in 2002, when I was a 16-year-old kid trying to find a way of getting out of school to watch the games on TV and now I find myself as a member of the Ireland squad and maybe even the team,” says the defender who joined Wolves from Irish league side Bohemians. “It’s hard for me to believe this is happening.”
