    No idea. Only two of the squad were invited to an assessment day in Dublin recently. There's some seriously high quality players in the squad too. Don't think Colin O'Brien was at either the league final or the Mark Farren Cup final.

    There was an article today in the Irish News about Betis youngster Anselmo Garcia MacNulty who has joined up with the U17s. He was up in Belfast learning about Belfast Celtic and Patrick O'Connell the former Real Betis manager...

    Ireland lost 3-1 to England in Tallaght earlier, despite England having a players sent off at the end of the first half. In truth, England deserved the win. They were organised in defence, and broke with pace in possession, and looked far more likely to score than Ireland. While the boys in green did play good football, passing across the park, moving into space, there was precious little created for the isolated striker Conor Carty in the first half.

    In the second half, Sobowale was moved up front to play alongside Carty, but England parked the bus and restricted the space for Ireland players. They didn't seem to have a Plan B. Plan A was to keep possession in defence, try to move up the park, push the full back (esp the left full) into the England half, but ran out of ideas after reaching the half way line, facing a blanket England defence.

    I was impressed with Holt and Everitt on the right in the first half. Ebosele impressed on the left in the second half. I was disappointed that only two substitutions were made, the second with only a minute remaining. The front players were clearly exhausted and needed to be replaced. Ebosele was shown a yellow card right before the end of the game after a mistimed tackle when he really should have been withdrawn beforehand.

    The penalty Ireland did score was right in front of me

    Lost 3-2 to the Czech Republic yesterday, the winner coming in the ninth minute of injury time. Wasn't at the game, but some of the reports suggest it was similar to the England game
    England drew 2-2 with Germany in UCD. The bowl isn't too far from where I live, and I had planned on going to that game, but I stayed in for the first leg of the Copa Libertafores final instead

    Ireland's two goals were really good too!

    Nice to see two lads with clubs from the 6 counties. McEvoy is playing first team for Ballinamallard, albeit in the second division up there.

    Always great to see the northern lads come in. Hodge wasn't in English squad for their games last week nor was okoflex. England have their qualifiers in a few weeks to that should tell us if Hodge and okoflex are commmited for this season
