GALLERY - Harry Arter makes it a special night for lucky Ireland fans after Moldova qualifier
Harry Arter may have been disappointed to miss out on a starting spot in the Ireland side of Friday night’s qualifiers with Moldova at the Aviva Stadium, but he warmed the hearts of some fans as he took time out for a stream of photographs after the game.
Bournemouth midfielder Arter was a late substitute for Ireland as he overcame a calf injury to ply a part in the 2-0 win and he may now be in contention to start in the crunch Group D decider against Wales on Monday.
Yet even if his role in the final World Cup qualifier in Dublin was less than significant, he still made an impact with the fans when the final whistle had sounded.
Most of the Aviva Stadium had emptied out by the time Arter wandered over to greet the remaining few Ireland fans before he posed for photographs for several minutes.
Disabled fan Jamie Monaghan and his dad Philip were especially chuffed to get a chance to meet Arter with these images confirming the Premier League star added a little sparkle to the evening for some lucky Ireland supporters.
