Gamble Joe at Cork City Capped by Ireland in 2007 v Ecuador

In his early career at Cork City and Reading, Gamble made eight appearances for the Republic of Ireland under-21s scoring once. The goal came as part of a 3-2 win against Denmark at his 'home' stadium, Turners Cross.

In 2006 Joe was nominated on the Eircom League team of the season and was shortlisted for player of the year. His displays for 'Cork City' did not go unnoticed by Ireland manager, Steve Staunton, and in May 2006 he was called up to the Irish International team. He manned the substitutes bench in a match against Chile, but a poor performance saw Staunton unwilling to experiment late in the game. Gamble later played for the Republic of Ireland B team against Scotland in November 2006 alongside teammate Roy O'Donovan. In doing so he became only the third City player ever to do so.

On Tuesday May 15th 2007 it was announced that Joe Gamble had again been drafted into Steve Staunton's Republic of Ireland squad to travel to America in order to take part in friendly matches against Ecuador and Bolivia. Joe came on as a second half substitute in the game angainst Ecuador.

He made his debut against Ecuador on May 23rd 2007 against Ecaudor in the Giant's Stadium, New Jersey, coming on as a second half substitute. PLUNKETT CARTER Profile
