Today Chris has made it clear that he is very much interested in playing for his country and said: "I won't be ringing Don but if he called me up again then I would report for duty. I know that is unlikely to happen.
"Of course I do want to play for Ireland but I was away with the squad for two games and if I'm not being given a chance then what was the point in me being there?
"People might see me in a bad light but I can't go back on it now," he said. "I know I'm good enough to have been in the team. What happened has happened and I just want to leave it at that."
