    does anyone know what to do if you're a Virgin Media customer? Looks like it's just Sky, no?

    I liked this chat with Liam Scales. There was also an interview with Jamie Lennon on the 42:
    'With football, there are no guarantees' - Jamie Lennon on his studies, the future, and working with Stephen Kenny https://the42.ie/4647503

    Common aspect to both is the importance of studies and the third level education they have received.

    I know it's ongoing with clubs partnering with colleges for scholarships and I think it's a great idea. We appear to be brilliant at developing rugby players and I would be surprised if the vast majority of the players developed here didn't have degrees for UL, NUIG or UCD which are near the training campuses.

    Saw Barrett play at No.10 for Reading’s reserves a few times. Really stood out. Good opportunity for him.

    Neil was excellent against Luxembourg. Really disappointing for him...

    I enjoy these short videos the FAI are sharing on social media. It's nice to see a couple of minutes on how the players and coaches and manager are interacting together.

    This video shows Kenny involved in training and highlights his positivity: https://twitter.com/FAIreland/status...853121024?s=19

    This shows the lads arriving to camp and they all seem delighted to be arriving and meeting Kenny. It also highlights a very dubious fashion sense which was hardly derived in Galway but Aaron Connolly: https://twitter.com/FAIreland/status...503820288?s=19

    It's all the rage in Galway. I have the same outfit in blue.

    Brilliant goal after 34 seconds China haven’t touched the ball.

    And 2-0. Came from a free kick off the wall and recycled. The free came from a super passing move started by the keeper.

    First goal was well worked across the back, to the left, Connolly powered into the box, squared it to Elbouzedi who finished from near the penalty spot

    One back for China. They’ve looked dangerous enough from set pieces and this was a great header from a corner. Entertaining game.

    2-1 at half time. Ireland playing some really nice passing football. Injecting a bit of pace with Connolly in particular as they move it down the channels. China more direct and dangerous from set pieces and counters. The Irish midfield and full back are committing forward quite a bit so they look a little exposed at times on the counter. Overall a nice half to watch. Idah has looked a little off the pace, his physicality is causing problems but his touch has been off when the ball has come into him.

    Started second half well and a deserved third from the peno spot. Idah tucked it away. That’s a goal each for the front 3.

    And another pen. 4-1 Idah again. Really solid second half. Subs that have come in have fitted in well too.

    Solid second half. Thought we sat back a little, but that was in response to China finding space in the first half when we pushed on.

    Decent performance, especially considering the Chinese team were a year or two older across the team.

    Thought the two Brighton lads - Molumby and Connolly - were probably the standouts. Ronan, O'Shea and O'Connor looked good as well and Knight looked lively when he came on.

    Was a bit disappointed with Idah, a big target man and took the penalties well but his touch and pass were very loose. He's very young for this level though so plenty of time for him to improve.

    There's almost two groups of players in that squad - there's the lads that are a year or two underage, most of which have a chance of going a long way in the game. Strangely the lads that are 21 are in a lot of cases the weaker players who are less likely to make it. With all the quality 17 to 20 year old we have at the moment I'd say we could have done some damage at the under 20 World Cup if we had qualified.

    Will be a tough game next up against Mexico but we should hopefully be too good for Bahrain and two wins with a good goal difference might be enough to make the semi finals.

    Great start, solid performance. O'Shea, Molumby, Ronan, Connolly all look like the real deal. O'Connor and Coventry may make it at the top level too. Knight was impressive when he came on. Two well taken penalties by Idah, but I am not sold on him yet, struggled with touch and hold up play improved somewhat in second half - really reminds me of Leon Best, who didn't amount to much. Hope I am wrong. I would have liked to have seen what Wilson can do, instead of Leahy. Masterson will unlikely be signed by premier league outfit. He would do well to get regular first team football in the championship, appears to lack the required physicality for center half but is tidy on the ball, needed a loan move well before now. Exciting future (and pre-season) ahead for Irish football

    Thought .Masterson was excellent great composure and passing range really allowed us to play into midfield and saved kelleher s blushes in first half. Great experience for idah with him having next season at under 19 level again
