Kavanagh's Irish dream.
July 23rd.

CARDIFF CITY skipper Graham Kavanagh believes his dream of again wearing the green shirt of the Republic of Ireland can become a reality in the next 12 months.

The Bluebirds midfielder opened up on his Irish hopes in a candid interview with The Western Mail as he prepares to lead his team out against IFK Malmo in the third and final match of their Scandinavian tour.

Kavanagh, speaking to us from City's base in the centre of the Swedish city, talked of:

HOW being a Division One player will greatly enhance his prospects of winning a fourth international cap;

THE way he has kept in tip-top shape by working out during his summer break;

HIS shock that so many players had turned down a move to Ninian Park in the last few weeks.

Kavanagh's message comes as Division One fervour hits the Welsh capital with the moneybags Bluebirds having charged from the Division Three dungeon to the heady heights of having the Premiership in their sights.

Season ticket sales have rocketed towards the 10,000 barrier and Bluebirds fans are licking their lips at the prospect of City playing West Ham, Sunderland, West Brom and Derby.

But amid the euphoria Bluebirds skipper Kavanagh is urging caution.
