Republic of Ireland midfielder Keith Fahey insists there is more to come from him after netting his first international goal.
The 27-year-old Birmingham City man came off the bench to earn his side a narrow 1-0 win over Armenia on Friday night, scoring for the first time after four games.
It was a crucial three points for Ireland in their opening Euro 2012 qualifier, and Fahey admits that he is high on confidence after getting the nod by coach Giovanni Trapattoni.
Fahey said: "It gives me great confidence. It's good to think that I am in his (Trapattoni's) thoughts anyway.
"There are other players he could have put on in front of me, so when I got the shout, I was delighted to get on.
"With the internationals, there are more games, you are involved more and your name is out there more, more people notice you.
"But this season, I will be looking to improve and try to get the best out of myself because I don't think I have shown the best of me yet."
Ireland take on minnows Andorra in Dublin on Tuesday evening, hoping to make it two Group B wins from two.
It remains to be seen if Fahey's winning goal against Armenia will earn him his first competitive start for his country, and he hopes his versatility will stand him in good stead.
He added: "I can play anywhere. I don't know if the manager thinks I can play anywhere, I am not too sure - you would have to ask him.
"But I can play anywhere across the middle, so it's a good thing to have.
"I know there are a couple of players out, but since I have come in, I have done well in training, so have as good a chance as anyone of playing. I would like to think so, anyway."
