It's a curious situation now that Luxembourg have overtaken Ireland. Maybe he thinks he has a better chance to get into the Irish team than Luxembourg. As it stands now he's a long shot, 5000/1, currently Dunphy has a better chance of getting the Ireland job than Ryan has of coming close to cementing his place in the team.
    Hes just another one of our young players right now that its time to start showing they can play mens football and forget about the "potential".

    Hopefully hes a good addition, the more the merrier, especially with players playing around other leagues. He needs to play 1st team football next season I would think if hes going to be a player

    With the law change that allows Johannson to play I assume that Crowley is now also eligible? Im not sure hes good enough but he could be an option at some point if he gets the right club manager that plays through him

    Yes, Crowley is definitely eligible (assuming he has an Irish grandparent).

    He'd certainly be a nice addition to the Spanish speaking contingent: John Joe Patrick Finn, Anselmo Garcia McNulty, Caden McLoughlin and perhaps Hollman McCormick...

    The vídeo said that his grandfather is irish. I also found it on google a written report. They also nicknamed him el irlandés. Iam tired to say that Ireland need to focus the granny rule in Scotland Wales Australia Canadá the US spain germany southamerica before England. English kids are forgetting their irishness

    this is a google translation of the video above
    but few teams in Colombia risk giving the opportunity to the
    young talents in soccer in this case independent santafé gave him the
    opportunity to a boy from Bogota named Holman Camilo McCormick and who
    He made his professional debut at just 14 years old
    His last name is of Irish origin and is due to his grandfather and with 14 years and
    359 days striker Camilo McCormick se
    became the new independent promise santafé professional
    I was born here in Bogota and I am a fan of Sant because of his coach, Harold Rivera.
    I include at minute 81 in the game in which Santa Fe beat Patriotas in Tunja
    one by three in the colombian cup and there mccormick fulfilled that dream of debuting
    with the professional team I feel quite a lot he is sweet more to follow
    working to win more minutes and accumulate more games began to play
    When I was eight years old in the team tell us, I was also in the national team
    child from Bogotá where he became a scorer I as a striker have
    polyfunctionality played as much as for the center for the bands
    preferably on the left since that is where he has been playing
    this year he came to independent santa fe signed his contract was included in the
    Professional payroll and their rights are the property of the cardinal mi team
    goal with santa fe is to get to stay to become a player
    important if god wants to be able to score many goals and give santafé a title
    This Thursday, October 28, Camilo McCormick will be 15 years old and
    His best gift was already given to him in advance by Santafé when he made it debut
    with the professional team
    To clarify a few things - he's 15 and is playing for Santa Fe in Colombia - https://independientesantafe.com/
    He's already played for Santa Fe in this season's Copa Libertadores as a late sub against Fluminese last Wednesday night (Thursday morning Ireland time) - https://conmebollibertadores.com/car...0Del%20Partido
    Didn't get a mention in the match report on the official site(which is strange) but he's listed on the squad here - https://independientesantafe.com/202...n-el-maracana/
    Must be one of the youngest players ever in the competition?

    they're playing River Plate at 1am Ireland time tonight. Fun fact about River's squad - they've no available goalkeepers so they've been forced to select a defender in nets

    He was called into a training camp for Colombia' U17s last September for this year's South American Under 17 Championship - https://fcf.com.co/index.php/2020/09...lina-sub-17-8/
    The tournament was due to be held at the end of March, but was postponed and has not been rescheduled, but apparently will take place this year - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_S...7_Championship

    I don't think the timeline fits very well for him to have an Irish grandfather. If say this kids dad was 30 when he had him. That means the father was born in Colombia about 45 years ago. The grandfather would have had to immigrate to Colombia from Ireland sometime before that (1976). That is way past the period when Irish people were immigrating to South America in the mid to late 1800s.

    And the oldest person he knows or knew with the surname "McCormick" is likely to be his grandfather and, yes, it would have come from him as the name was passed down. That doesn't mean he was born in Ireland.

    I'm skeptical as to whether he is eligible.

    live on espn the broadcaster Mariano Closs remarked that " la joyita de 15 ańos de abuelos irlandeses estamos esperando para verlo jugar" they said abuelos ( both grandma and grandpa a marriage thats my coloquial undestanding) this Holman Camilo McCormick is an enigma that only FAI could solve

    Well Irish people still migrate to South America now. The Colombian economy would have pretty strong through the 60s to the 80s at a time when Ireland's was very poor. Even today, there'd be pockets f recent Irish emigrants to Brazil and Argentina.

    I'd be amazed if this lad is eligible for us to be honest. I mean it's obviously not impossible, but surely we would need to have a bit more evidence before we take any interest.
