    A little, it's that the age of a young player breaking through to the first team has raised slightly with the introduction of the new U23 league

    He could be a shoo-in for the under 21 squad given that Kenny referred to his lack of options up front, as well as injuries to a few lads his age.

    The under 19s have their elite qualifiers the week before the U21 game, so him, Idah, Cassidy and Parrott will be split between the two squads.

    Southampton playing Villareal tonight in the PL International Cup, and streaming it on their YouTube channel at 7: https://www.youtube.com/user/theofficialsaints

    Few Irish lads in the team, see below, but not Afolabi

    Keogh on the bench only turned 17 a week ago, so being involved at this level is impressive

    That's great stuff - he's really starting to motor now and has only just turned 18 today - he's younger than any of the other top scorers in his division.

    Elsewhere, 17-year-old Tyriek Wright really seems to have settled into the Villa U23 side, being credited with two assists against Newcastle

    I said on the Gibraltar thread that I thought Parrott might be a bit slight for senior football yet (compared with say, Obafemi); Idah physically looks like he could handle himself physically already.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age
