    erm, we've qualified for the tournament as hosts Joe.
    After that round, the eight group winners and seven runners-up with the best record against the teams first and third in their pool will join hosts Ireland in that May's finals.

    The Carlisle and Whitehall. FFS. Seriously, Markets Field or Galway are within the threshold, even Athlone for god sake.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Nice to see odubeko included up front.

    Looks like hodge is sticking with us for now very surprising as he was starter for England and they have their qualifiers this week.

    McCann s first call up has played loads for utd 18s .

    With bazuna, obesele and parrott to come into this for the euros hopefully we will be strong. Sotona who made utd 18s debut at weekend also eligible.

    Be interesting to see if oko flex is in the England 17s squad this week .

    McKinley was on bench for derry again bohs last week

    Strange that England's U17 side hasn't been announced yet, they start their elite qualifiers on Thursday
    FWIW their U19 side has been announced - http://www.thefa.com/news/2019/mar/1...g-round-140319 - and includes Chelsea's Conor Gallagher, who some on here had been enquiring about

    Felix Nmecha is also in their squad. His older brother Lukas switched from England to the German U21s recently.

    Distance, but I'll have to take it back, Limerick is further away than the largest trip last year - Rotherham to Walsall

    I think the venues have to be within one hour of the team hotel.

    ITs a mad one isn't it?Don't think there is any Scotland link. No one seemed to be able to explain how he is England eligible not even the lads over on bigsoccer England forum who could only argue the home nations agreement of going to school for 5 years in England but I can't see how that applies when you were born in ireland. Would he need to have English citizenship and is that likely given he moved over at 11 or 12?


    He obviously has Nigerian father but no mention of English heritage. On the other hand seems unlikely Brits would have in loved him so much if he wasn't going to be eligible when it came to these qualifiers. The other option of course is he is not good enough for them. In fairness I thought he looked class in our under 16s victory shield win last season.

    This means he could be eligible for Ireland in the summer so. Not sure I want him if money and resources mean more to him than national pride at this stage, I donít he will though as I feel if he was going to be involved we would have seen him picked for Ireland u17s already.
