Gibson returns to action

Darron Gibson returned to competitive football last night in a friendly match against Oman for the Republic Of Ireland at Dublin's Aviva Stadium.

It was his first appearance in ten months following an injury he picked up whilst on international duty.

Gibson ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament during the Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan back in October last year.

Gibson was only 38 minutes into his second appearance for his country after he returned from his self imposed international exile following Giovanni Trapattoni's departure, with interim replacement Noel King giving him a recall.

Gibson was ruled out for the remainder of the season and has only featured for Everton during pre-season.

Last night Gibson played 70 minutes as Ireland won 2-0.

'Being out for 10 months last season gave me a lot of time to think about things, and I think this is now or never, really, to be honest with you, so I am looking forward to the task ahead. Gibson told evertonfc.com before the Oman game.

He continued: "It just made me realise that I`m not getting any younger. I need to start playing games and I need to start doing well for myself. It`s a big opportunity for me."

"The injury last year was tough for me, I was devastated when I did it, But the staff and players at Everton helped me through it.

"Being out for 10 months is tough. The hardest thing was going every week to Goodison and watching the lads, knowing I should have been playing and there was not really much I could do about it.
