Phil Neville's Son Harvey Included In Ireland U19 Squad

Ireland U19 head coach Tom Mohan today named his squad for two friendlies against Denmark in Sligo.

Phil Neville's son Harvey, who plays for Manchester United, has been included. The 17-year-old previously played with Manchester City and Valencia.

RTÉ reports that he qualifies to play for Ireland through his mother, Julie's side of the family.

There is also a place in the squad for Celtic midfielder Armstrong Oko-Flex. The Dublin-born player, who was on the books at Arsenal before moving to Glasgow, is also eligible to play for England and Nigeria.

Also named is Borussia Monchengladbach forward Conor Noß. It is a first call-up for the German-born player who has been involved with the Bundesliga side's first team squads in recent games.

"Conor plays at number 10," said Mohan.

"He was in our last training camp. He impressed a lot and is technically a very good player. He’s doing very well in Germany and we’re excited by him."
