U17 EURO: Ireland complete squad with Idowu call-up

As they approach their opening game in the 2019 UEFA European Under-17 Championships, the Republic of Ireland Under-17s have finalised their 20-player squad.
1st May 2019

Southampton attacker Roland Idowu will join the squad for their third session of the week at the FAI National Training Centre as they continue to prepare for Friday's clash with Greece at Tallaght Stadium.

Head Coach Colin O'Brien had been monitoring the situation of Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Troy Parrott, but due to medical advice the Dubliner will not be part of this year's tournament.

Idowu will now link up with a squad working hard to make the most of home advantage as they begin their task of making it out of Group A by firstly taking on Greece, before the focus turns to Czech Republic and Belgium next week.
