    Going to be hard to judge that against Gibraltar, with all respect to them, but still, I think it'll be the first real point of interest, not the new call-ups
    Oneill's style of football was so out-dated, that regardless of the opposition we couldn't hold the ball. The USA youth team schooled us in Lansdowne.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Question actually - when was the last time we had an English fourth-tier player in a squad? Let's ignore questions as to whether Dutch second tier/LoI/Scottish second is equivalent

    I can't think of any, but maybe one of those summer tours?

    Good question... I thought maybe Alan O'Brien - he won his 5 caps in 2006 and 2007 having spent 05/06 on loan with L2 Carlisle for part of that period, but he was back at Newcastle a few months before his debut. Would it have counted as he was technically with a higher club anyway? I don't recall anybody in the last 30+ years.

    I think that would have counted, but yeah, as you say, his loan spell ended a few months before.

    No on Forde I think; he joined Portsmouth after the Euros, but I don't think he made a squad again after being dropped after the Belarus friendly?

    Peter Murphy from Carlisle? Didn't he get a cap on the 07 tour of the USA?

    Yes - but they were third tier at the time. Newly-promoted, but just missed the play-offs

    (Could be worth a split to another thread actually)

    It should have been Grealish, if O'Neill had called him up for the US summer tour that year he was on loan he would never have switched

    Jack Grealish? Never played fourth tier; he was on loan at Notts County in the third tier.

    Fair enough, I thought Notts County were in League 2 at the time

    Hard to understand how McCarthy and Judge make the squad while Richie Towell, a regular starter in the Championship, doesn't.

    Nope; second tier. He was capped as a third-tier player, but not as a fourth-tier player

    I thought it might have been Cascarino, but he was with Gillingham in the old division three (ie league one) when he was called up
