During the international break, Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick has led the line for the Republic of Ireland and helped his country to back-to-back wins.
Last weekend’s 1-0 win over Gibraltar was followed up with a 1-0 victory at home against Georgia as the Irish top their group.
And McGoldrick was voted man of the match – as confirmed by the FA Ireland Twitter account – for his performance against Georgia.
The 31-year-old provided the Boys in Green with an outlet up front and his non-stop running caused problems for the Georgian defence.
Although McGoldrick could not get on the score sheet himself, his display helped the Republic of Ireland edge Georgia out to claim maximum points in their first two qualifying matches.
Sheffield United fans were delighted with McGoldrick’s performance. And it is nothing less than they expect after watching him all season.
The Republic of Ireland international joined on a free transfer from Ipswich Town last summer and has scored 12 goals in 37 games to help the Blades to second place.
Sheffield United fans took to Twitter to praise McGoldrick’s performance and here are the best tweets.
Free transfer eh ? who needs money ? You just need intelligence on players instead of wasting money on dross take note S6

What is surprising ? about this? He gets one most weeks at the lane. The same goes for Enda, watch the blades and you will see this quality all over the pitch. We take other teams rejects and polish them into Gems.
