    2022 UEFA European Under-19 Championship

    Gilsenen and McCormack both injured. No John Joe patrick Finn. Ferguson and O’Neill with the 21s.

    Sean Roughan, Sinclair Armstrong and David Okagbue back. 21s’ Rose, Lawal, Moran all involved.

    Sam Curtis and Kevin Zefi moved up from 17s to 19s...

    Think back to the age group at 17s, the main names missing are probably Leigh Kavanagh (Brighton), Gavin Liam O’Brien (Bohs). There was also Colin Conroy (Bohs), kyle Conway (Pats) and Cian Kelly Caprani (Derby - still u18) was moved up at some point too...

    Squad announced:

    Finn Benoa the biggest omission from the squad, but it's good to see Lawal named in midfield as hope that's where he'll play long term for us. We're kinda stacked as is with young talented CBs and could need someone with his presence as a midfielder.

    Also Jack Henry Francis seems to be highly thought of at Arsenal so gonna be interesting to see how he gets on over the three games and whether he'll go straight into the XI after coming back from injury and the others all played last month.

    Looking at the forward options could see us playing more 4-2-3-1 than a 4-3-3. Is a tough group and could see Lawal and someone else playing in a midfield two with the likes of Moran or Zefi as the attacking midfielder.

    I’d guess: it’ll be Rose in goal.

    Anselmo and one of Okagbue or Roughan at centre back. Tayo at left back. Maybe Abankwah at right back.

    A midfield of Lawal, Caffrey and Francis-Henry.

    Moran on the left. Could be any of Emakhu, Armstrong or Kenny up top. I’ll go with Emakhu. Right wing, Zefi can play there and may well. Don’t remember seeing Hayes play, otherwise one of the strikers... Also noticed Cristiano Fitzgerald is missing who was likely to start on the wing... Interesting to see if Ollie O'Neill is used by the 21s, personally would rather he was with the 19s

    I saw that squad announced, and while I don't follow the transition from age-group to age-group very well at times, my first reaction is that this is a serious group of underage players for us. There are probably 10 household names in that squad in Rose, McNulty, Roughan, Henry-Francis, Lawal, Armstrong, Emakhu, Zefi, Moran & Kenny. It's nice to see us stacked in the forward positions for a change.

    I've seen Abankwah a few times, and he's very impressive. Looking forward to seeing Anselmo myself, but most of all, Lawal.

    The only thing I'd say about our underage set-up (and I fully understand why they do it), is that for some groups, the 4-3-3 that they implement doesn't get the best out of certain players, so very interested to see who and how they get picked. Is it possible to get Moran, Zefi, Emakhu & Kenny into the same side?

    Is it wrong to wonder why Evan Ferguson isn't picked? He hasn't impressed at 21s despite killing it at PL 23s.

    Also, we should be qualifying from this group. Not at ease, but we should make it out.

    You'd hope that would be the case with that team. The back four have all been exposed to a good level of under 23 or senior football already. Don't know much or haven't seen much of McJannet and Henry- Francis but the forwards are another line of lads playing to under 23 and senior football.

    If you look at the profile of that starting side and ignored their ages, it wouldn't be far off resembling some of our under 21 squads during the dark days. Armstrong in the national league (a goal in his first two games), Kenny scoring in the LOI and Andrew Moran playing for a Premiership under 23 side with a touch of senior exposure. I bet that's comparable to some of King's sides. Actually, I've rooted out an example: https://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/irel...-double-header

    That front 3 would be better than one comprising of Quigley, Greego-Cox and Hale. And none of that trio came through the FAI's system at club level. Sligo and Shamrock Rovers and Bray Wanderers have been critical to Kenny, Armstrong and Moran in their development.

    Mad.

    2 in quick succession puts us in the driving seat (Armstrong and Kenny). Bosnia leading Bulgaria 1-0 in the other game (roughly 60 mins gone in both games).

    Finishes 3-2. Raft of subs in the last 5 mins, dunno if that caused issues for us.

    Avoid defeat to Bosnia next day, and we're probably through. Best just to go and beat them.

    The win was the most important thing today but conceding those 2 late goals could come back to cost a seeding place when it come to the draw for the next round. 9 points might be all we need to qualify as a top seed.

    Pity about the two goals at the end as it could come down to goal difference to get a good seeding in the elite round if we get there. Especially after the way we dominated the game up until that point.

    Finished two nil to Bosnia and Bulgaria had a man sent off before half time when 1-0 down.

    A few groups have already played and only one team has 9 points so 9 points should see us get top seed.
