Ireland U21 Squad Named For Armenia And Sweden Games

Ireland U21 Squad Named For Armenia And Sweden Games

Stephen Kenny has named his Ireland U21 squad for this month's qualifiers against Armenia and Sweden.

Aston Villa's Jack Clarke, Hearts' Aidan Keena and Southampton's Thomas O'Connor (currently on loan at Gillingham) all receive their first call-ups.

Jayson Molumby and Lee O'Connor will both miss the game against Armenia due to suspension but will then join up with the squad for the game against Sweden.

Troy Parrott is not included as he has been called up to the senior team. Even without Parrott and Aaron Connolly, the front line is still a potent one featuring Adam Idah and Michael Obafemi.

Jonathan Afolabi, Darragh Leahy and Luca Connell are all unavailable due to injury.

Ireland play Armenia in Yerevan on November 14th and then Sweden in Dublin on November 19th.
