West Ham United stopper Darren Randolph started for the Republic of Ireland against Switzerland yesterday.

West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph has expressed his delight at helping the Republic of Ireland pick up an impressive win over Switzerland on Friday evening.

Randolph started in goal for Martin O’Neil’s side, as they picked up an impressive friendly victory.

Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clarke put Ireland into the lead in the second minute of the match, and they held on to their advantage for the remainder of the contest.

Randolph’s performance was key to Ireland keeping a clean sheet, as he pulled off a number of notable saves.

The Swiss has 12 shots in the match, but they could not find a way past Randolph in the Ireland goal.

And the former Birmingham City man was quick to celebrate on social media site Twitter after the contest.

Ireland will take great heart from their performance against Switzerland, as they build up to EURO 2016.

Ireland have been drawn against Italy, Sweden and Belgium at the international tournament which takes place in France. 

O’Neill’s men’s next match comes against Slovakia on Tuesday evening.
