MU19 | Mohan names squad for Elite Phase

Republic of Ireland Men’s Under-19 Head Coach Tom Mohan has named a 20-man squad for his side’s UEFA U19 European Championship Elite Phase qualifiers in England this week.  
21st Mar 2022

Ireland take on hosts England on Wednesday at Walsall FC, followed by Portugal on Saturday at St. George’s Park and Armenia on Tuesday (March 29) at the same venue.
 
Mohan is aiming to qualify for a first European Championships since 2019 when the young Boys in Green reached the Semi Finals in Armenia.
 
Speaking ahead of the qualifiers Tom Mohan, said: “I’m really looking forward to the games and I’m looking forward to the challenge. 

“I keep saying to the players it’s not every day-of-the week you get an opportunity to play for your country and especially the quality of teams we’re going up against. 
 
“They’ll be three different teams with three different systems but this is where players get their confidence from, by putting in big performances against big nations.”
