The Green Shoots Thread

There's another lad at Bayern Munich Ryan Johansen he's half Swedish half Irish, can play for Ireland Luxemburg and Sweden.
Not sure what the story is with him though.

As of Oct 2018 he opted for Luxembourg.

"But his family have since notified the Abbotstown authorities that Johansson intends to play with Luxembourg for now.

That came as a "surprise" to Mohan, although he acknowledged that the quirks of the eligibility rules might be a factor.

Johansson has already played competitive underage football for Luxembourg. Therefore, if he then switched to play competitive underage football for another country, he would be bound to that nation for the rest of his career.

However, he was free to take up the option to play in the friendly matches and has already played non-competitively for Sweden too.

"He's not closing the door with us. It's such a big decision so early, he's keeping his options open and that's it," said Mohan yesterday."

Won his case and is free to join up with Irish U21s now

Adam Idah got in for the last ten minutes for Norwich against Liverpool and did not look out of place. At one point he received the ball on the left wing bodied up Matip and then rounded him. He then held off VVD and played a nice ball. A few moments later he nearly had a goal in a goal mouth melee. Looked lively.

ENGLISH Premier League new boys Brentford say they are “excited” to have signed Swords 18-year-old Val Adedokun from FAI Cup holders Dundalk.

Former Malahide United underage player Adedokun completed his move to the London side last Tuesday on a three-year deal after passing a medical, and while he will initially join the Bees’ B squad before he can progress to the first-team panel, Brentford are pleased to have landed the player.

“We’re really excited to bring Val to the club. He is somebody who has played first-team football in Ireland, and he will come here with really good attributes,” said Brentford B head coach Neil MacFarlane.

“He is somebody with electric pace and he also has experience of playing higher up the pitch. We’re looking forward to working with him and helping him to improve over the next few years.

“One thing about playing football in Ireland is that you have to be able to deal with the basics of the game and you also have to be tough, and that upbringing will stand him in good stead as he looks to progress in his career.”

Adedokun has been with Dundalk since 2017 and made his first-team debut against Shamrock Rovers last September, going on to make a further eight appearances for the club this season.

“I’m pleased to join Brentford,” Adedokun told dundalkfc.com.

“It’s been a goal of mine to get across to England and play for a club like this. To get this opportunity is more than I could have dreamed of.”

Adedokun began his footballing journey in Swords, joining the Rivervalley Rangers academy as a four-year-old, and he remained at the club until he was 11 when he was picked up by Malahide United.

Brentford have made an encouraging start to their Premier Division campaign, beating Arsenal on the opening night of the season before holding Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace to a draw at Selhurst Park.

The U17 game last night last was the first competitive international fixture (from U17 up, at least) with no Ireland player involved tied to an English club.

Some performance, and result there to beat Sweden. Totally deserved as well. Never heard of the two lads, Ollie O'Neill and Will Ferry who impressed off the bench. Kilkenny will get a senior call soon enough. Interesting to see how much of a look-in Smallbone gets at Southampton this year.
