Under 19 Squad Update
REPUBLIC of Ireland U19 boss Paul Doolin has had to make a further change to his squad for this weekâ€™s UEFA Championships qualifying tournament.
Inverness midfielder Conor Pepper has been forced to withdraw from the squad in Luxembourg and is returning to his club today after suffering an aggravation of a recent ankle injury.
Newcastle Unitedâ€™s Brandon Miele has been called up in his place and will link up with the squad in time for this eveningâ€™s training session.
â€śItâ€™s unfortunate for Conor as the injury was innocuous enough but you canâ€™t afford to take changes with these things,â€ť said Doolin.
â€śTraining has gone well and weâ€™re looking forward to the challenge ahead. Itâ€™s difficult to get all your ideas across when you have limited time with the squad but Iâ€™ve been pleased with how the lads have responded.â€ť
