WEST HAM striker Terry Dixon may not have made the first team squad yet, but he was back in an Ireland shirt last week.

The 20-year-old, who is slowly recovering from a career-threatening knee injury, was a substitute for the Republic, creating the Irish under-21s goal in Armenia in a 2-1 defeat.

Dixon, a former Spurs apprentice, has played four times for the West Ham reserves this season, scoring one goal.
