    U19 squad named for Elite qualifiers

    Greg Cunningham was called up to the senior side for the two friendlies next week, personally I would have let him play with the U19's

    It's a strong looking midfield, with Henderson, Clifford, Brady and Hourihane but defence and up front looks weak. West Ham's Daniel Kearns is included, isn't his eligibility part of the Northern Ireland case with CAS?
    from http://www.fai.ie/index.php?option=c...r-19&Itemid=12
    Republic of Ireland Under-19 Squad:
    Ger Hanley - Mervue United
    Ian McLoughlin - Ipswich Town
    Richie Towell - Celtic
    Johnny Dunleavy - Wolverhampton Wanderers
    Andy Boyle - UCD
    Sean McGinty - Manchester United
    Shaun Timmins - Birmingham City
    Shane McEleney - Derry City
    Conor Clifford - Chelsea
    Conor Henderson - Arsenal
    Conor Hourihane - Sunderland
    Daniel Kearns - West Ham United
    Jimmy Keohane - Wexford Youths
    Robbie Brady - Manchester United
    Ronan Murray - Ipswich Town
    Jamil Adam - Barnsley
    Joe Mason - Plymouth Argyle
    Harry Crawford - Southend United.
    Fixtures:
    Wednesday, May 26
    England v Republic of Ireland (12 noon) - FFU Training complex, Kiev

    Friday, May 28

    Conor Clifford, have not heard much about him for a few months.
    3 Conors, is that not good luck?

    u must have been stuck down a cave

    he just captained chelsea to their first fa youth cup victory in donkeys years, scoring the winning goal in the process.

    on the back of that success he received a lot of newspaper and radio coverage in the irish sports media the last month

    on the other hand, robbie brady doesnt seem to have made much progress at united this season for someone who was rated so highly going over

    At the Galway Utd UCD game last night, I thought I heard the announcer say that Karl Sheppard had been called up for this squad. Was I hearing things?
    Criticism is prejudice made plausible

    1-0's not a 'bad' result, but obviously there was a chance to set ourselves up for qualification. Nice to see that we can hold our own against our most illustrious neighbors.
    Ukraine on Friday on Bosnia & Herzegovina Sunday. They play later this evening. A draw would suit.

    English reserve keeper Liam O'Brien must be one of ours!

    Ukraine won 4-1, we'll do well to be them, current champions, at home.

    England won 4-0 today meaning Ireland have to win their remaining two games.
    Two changes to the line up today, Karl Sheppard and James Keohane in for Ronan Murray and Harry Crawford.
    1 Gerard Hanley (GK)
    2 Richard Towell
    3 John Dunleavy
    4 Sean McGinty
    5 Shane McEleney
    6 Conor Hourihane
    8 Conor Clifford (C
    10 Conor Henderson
    11 Robert Brady
    17 James Keohane
    18 Karl Sheppard
    Looks like 4-5-1 to me but maybe they've pushed Brady forward.

    1-0 up thanks to a Clifford penalty after 60 mins.
    Robert Brady has been sent off though just after half time.
    Backs against the wall stuff now. Our underage sides have been in this situation countless times before,
    lets hope they hold on........
