And Eire supporters have taken to social media calling for the Pompey forward to start against Denmark tonight.

Curtis made his Republic of Ireland senior bow on Thursday, coming on at a half-time in his country's 0-0 friendly draw with Northern Ireland.

The Blues forward delivered an eye-catching performance, doing his hopes of being handed a start by Martin O'Neill at Ceres Park no harm.
