Norwich City’s Academy players Josh Giurgi and Andrew Omobamidele have both been selected for the Republic of Ireland’s Under-17s squad for the upcoming European Championships.
Giurgi and Omobamidele were involved in Ireland’s two defeats against Finland in the last round of International friendlies back in March, as the boys in green prepared for the Euros taking place in their homeland.
Both players have featured heavily for the Under-18s this season under boss Paul Williams, with Omobamidele also making the Under-23s squad on a handful of occasions.
Republic of Ireland’s Under-17s are in Group A and will take on Belgium, Czech Republic and Greece. There are four groups, with the top two teams from each group progressing through to the quarter finals.
