Ryan McGivern says he was thrilled to make his full Hibernian debut in front of a buoyant Easter Road crowd on Saturday and admits he would love to experience further game-time in the green of Northern Ireland against Portugal next Tuesday (16 October).
Left-back McGivern, on loan from English champions Manchester City, was handed a starting spot against Dundee and produced an assured display in a convincing 3-0 win - something he was delighted about.
McGivern said: "I really enjoyed it - it was a great feeling to make my home debut and to have played 90 minutes in front of the Hibs crowd.
"I thought the atmosphere at Easter Road was fantastic and I was really happy with the result and the fact we recorded a clean sheet.
"The clean sheet was really pleasing for the back-four and the goalkeeper - that's just as important as the three goals we scored. I can't wait for the next match at Ross County."
McGivern's next task could potentially be to mark one of the greatest players in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo when Northern Ireland face Portugal at Porto next Tuesday night (kick off 8.45pm local time).
The 22-year-old currently has 18 caps for his country and says he is aiming to earn a place on the pitch against Portugal.
He added: "I'm really looking forward to it. As a young player, it's great to be involved in games like this because you can test yourself against the best.
"But I realise that I've just got to work hard in training and hopefully do enough to get some game time on the pitch."
Meanwhile, Hibernian captain James McPake has been ruled out of the Portugal clash after suffering an Achilles injury.
But the central defender is confident he will be fit enough to feature for Hibernian at Ross County on Saturday 20 October.
There is an interview with McPake now available to watch only on Hibernian TV (click here to subscribe).
