    Some serious talents coming through in a few of our underage teams. Obviously,a lot will fall by the wayside and it might be the unheralded one that becomes a Seamus Coleman.

    I'm confident for our future. Last year St Kevin's u13s beat Barcelona in Dublin and their coach said what a good team kevin's are. Those lads wouldn't be on the international scene yet so it bodes well that this might be a sign of good things to come rather than one or two good batches.

    Have to admit i have only seen him once but parrott is meant to be really special.

    Really hope okoflex who has already played for Arsenal under 18s a few times at 15 doesn't end up staying with the Brit's. Still an under 16 like parrot hoped he would be in this squad. Be awful to see a lad born in Ireland and live here till 11 or 12 play for the Brit's.

    not a very sexy one but for me kelleher the Liverpool keeper who was under 19s keeper last year is the best keeper I have seen underage since given I think. Great with his feet really assured and good shot stopper. I see a fair bit of him on Liverpool TV cause I'm a pool fan. Problem for him is gabara the polish keeper who is a few months younger is also a savage keeper so they share the 23s and friendlies. Be great if he got to go on loan. Outfield I suppose Lee o Connor at Utd looks like our future right full. Didn't get to Waterford this week unfortunately but wood have been real interesting seeing him play in advanced right midfield. I think he was injured in the euros last may and we didn't see him at his best. Was surprised as well that idah didn't end up at a much bigger club than Norwich he was unreal quality in that victory shield tournament last year and even in the euros playing a year up looked quality. Still ever since Richie partridge and mcphail didn't really make it after looking outrageous everytime I saw them underage I've given up hoping these come through! You'd have to hope that Ronan at wolves will be an important creative player for us and we will have been very glad to have robbed him from the brits

    I can't remember what it's like to lose! That's in Bulgaria as well so a really good scoreline, not that it's too hostile over there I'd imagine.

    I saw on the FAI Facebook page the stats on what has been "an incredible 22 days for Ireland's senior & underage teams in competitive qualifying matches":


    • Played 12
    • Won 10
    • Drawn 2
    • Lost 0
    • Scored 27
    • Conceded 1

    Finished 3-0, Idah with the third. Ukraine thumped Azerbaijan 6-1 in the other game, so Ireland top the group due to not conceding in the qualifiers yet. Final group positions to be decided in the final game on Monday against Ukraine

    Just went back over Idah's record for the U-17s - I think he made his debut in a friendly against Slovenia in August 2016 - since then, by my count, he's scored 16 times, including 10 competitive goals! That's pretty phenomenal. Anyone know if that's a record for this age group? Or any underage group?

    Finished 3-1 to Ireland, Idah with two and O'Reilly with the other. Ireland top the group with a 100% record and concede only one goal in the qualifying round!

    Draw for the Elite qualifying round is on 6th December

    it will be an interesting likely totally irrelevant comparison case study to see how 2 of our most talented goalscorers underage Of The last 20 yrs fare over the next 5 years one mccauley at a massive club with crazy resources playing with the best young talent and been coached by Gerard and the other idah at a small club like Norwich With limited resources. Hopefully both go on to play top flight football despite being at such different UK clubs

    Definiteky. McAuley has a lot of ground to make up on the international front anyway.

    The 42 are reporting that Idah is of Nigerian and Irish descent. What's his background exactly, do you know?
