Six ex Belvedere players have been named in Republic of Ireland underage squads for games next week.

Troy Parrott (above, now Tottenham Hotspur) and Oisin McEntee (below, now Newcastle United) are in the Ireland U19 squad for two friendly games against Wales.

Tom Mohan's team will host the Welsh at City Calling Stadium in Longford on Sunday at 3pm followed by the second game in Galway on Tuesday (11th Sept) at 12pm.

With the 2019 UEFA European Under-19 Championship Qualifying Round to come in October, Head Coach Tom Mohan wants to have a look at some players before that squad is named.

"You want to win matches, but if you get good performances there is a good chance you will get the right results."
