Derrick Williams admits he's "buzzing" to get the chance to add more international honours with the Republic of Ireland.

The 25-year-old has linked up with his national team this week, alongside team-mate Darragh Lenihan, with both defenders looking for more international action.

Martin O’Neill’s side face Denmark in Dublin on Saturday (October 13th), before hosting Wales in the Irish capital three days later.  

Both players will be hoping to add to the solitary caps they collected in the summer, with Williams making his Ireland debut against France at the end of May and Lenihan making his senior bow against the USA in early June.

"It’s always good to be recognised. I was injured before the last trip which was frustrating but I'm buzzing that I managed to make the final cut this time around and with injury behind me.

"Obviously it's great news for Darragh to have earned the call up as well. We've got a good connection and know each other's game well having recently played together in the defence.

"We have two tough games coming up, but we're really looking forward to them and are itching to get out there."
