Snodgrass completes his dream
Robert had described playing for Scotland as a "childhood dream" and that dream became reality when he won his first cap in Wednesday's 3-0 win against Northern Ireland in Dublin.
Snoddy was introduced to proceedings in the 57th minute of the contest - Scotland were 3-0 up when he came on - and he went on to impress during his first half-an-hour as an international player.
Just moments after his arrival he sent a trademark effort just over the top, and he was soon causing problems with his crosses.
One good cross in was met by the accidental hand of fellow Scot Craig Conway and with 11 minutes remaining, Snodgrass was brought down by Chris Baird just outside of the box when he threatened again.
As the game headed towards its final moments, Snoddy saw another effort drift just wide as the United man made an immediate impression on his debut.
United first team coach Glynn Snodin, Northern Ireland's assistant manager, will have been disappointed with the result, but on a club level, he will have been pleased with the contribution made by the United midfielder.
