Robbie Brady has praised his Hull City teammate Stephen Quinn for the impact that he has made at international level.
The Tigers and Republic of Ireland pair both featured in their nation's 2-1 win against Georgia which got their Euro 2016 qualification off to the perfect start, and Brady has hailed Quinn's ability.
The Hull star has spent most of his career so far playing in the lower leagues, but he has emerged into a fine Premier League player in recent times.
"Stephen was excellent against Georgia, it was a high-pressure game to come into for your first competitive match but he did so well," he said. "I don't think I have seen him play a bad game.
"I am playing with him now for the last few years, at club level for a while and now for a year and a bit with Ireland. He is great in training but he does it in games as well, hopefully people will see now what a great player he is."
The duo will have big roles to play at club and international level this season, as they are both valuable members of Hull's and Ireland's squads.
Ireland have a real chance of qualifying for the European championships, given the increased places made available for the competition, and the form of their Hull duo will be imperative to them making it to France.
Brady and Quinn will be looking to continue to impress for their club side, too. Last season Steve Bruce guided Hull to arguably the greatest campaign they have ever had, as a solid showing in the Premier League was backed up with a run to the FA Cup final.
A repeat of their cup exploits looks unlikely, but Hull have bought very well and should certainly have enough quality to push on up the table again this year.
Bruce's men have already been dumped out of the Europa League, and whilst this was a major disappointment for the supporters, it could turn into a positive.
Hull don't have the biggest squad in the English top flight, and the demands of European and domestic football would have tested their stamina.
Now, the whole squad can focus on their Premier League campaign and it could be to their benefit, as they look to consolidate as a top-level club for the foreseeable future.
