    I can confirm that the guy who hopped the wall to give Zefi a hug after the third goal was thrown out but given a hero's welcome by the ball boys as he was escorted away.

    Is it right that Vata is 2006 born so under 17 again next season?

    It's very impressive. There surely will be massive pressure for him to play for Albania. His dad was surely a legend for Albania.

    “Nobody in the Albanian FA contacted me about Rocco. I know that Scotland have watched him too, but the Irish association was the first to get in contact.” Vata told SunSport.
    “His granny is the happiest Irish woman in Scotland!

    In 2019 in response to his son playing for Ireland his dad said:
    “People in Albania know through social media he has been selected by Ireland. I believe many people back home are calling me names.
    “But if Albania had been professional enough, shown some interest and done their homework right they would have recognised Rocco was playing for Celtic and they would have contacted me.
    “They didn’t show any kind of respect, desire or professionalism, and if they don’t do that, he will never play for Albania.”


    His mam, born in Scotland with an Irish mother, is Ireland mad and tweets away very proudly about him playing for Ireland. The only family pressure I can see is for him to play for Ireland. What you'll probably see is increasing Scottish media pressure about his decision if he breaks through at Celtic. McCarthy and McGeady got a lot of grief for their decisions and were singled out for booing and abuse in away matches in Scotland particularly at Ibrox.

    And whilst his mother's father is probably Scottish, it appears as though they are huge Celtic fans and immersed in the Irish community there.

    It's an interesting one. He probably has two Albanian grandparents, one Scottish and one Irish so he's as Irish as he is Scottish really in some ways. As I have said, if Zefi and Ferizaj are Irish-Albanian and excelling with us it surely makes it a little easier for us to keep Rocco too. We are blessed they are a similar age in that regard!

    Looks like the final qualifier against Poland at 1pm today will be online, there's a live stream from Turner's Cross on FAI's YouTube channel at the moment

    Nothing there right now, unless you want to watch someone cutting the grass
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Think Mark O'Mahoney is the player next to him. Cathal Heffernan is a big lad all the same and was an interview recently with his dad about how himself and Steven Ireland have become good mates and how Ireland has been helping his son

    Just tuned in to see a free kick equaliser from what must have been very close to 30 yards.

    He also came on as sub for Pats recently. Big lad for 17.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Really bizarrely, in a weird coincidence I know the Polish U17 keeper.

    You're such a name dropper. I've met Pele and Michael Stipe. I doubt either remembers me.
