David Moyes feels Darron Gibson will play for Ireland again – despite the midfielder’s withdrawal from the squad for next week’s World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan.

The midfielder was initially named in the 23-man party for the game but has opted to decline the invitation.

Gibson, who picked up a thigh strain in the Blues’ 2-0 defeat at West Brom, is disappointed with a lack of playing opportunities for his country – particularly at Euro 2012.

Moyes said: "He's not played recently and travelled to all the games including the Euros. I'm very disappointed he's not been selected and maybe he feels that way too. I think he's spoken with the manager."

But the Everton boss added: "The club always encourages players to play for their international teams. He will play again for Ireland I have no doubt about that."
