Omobamidele debuts for Republic of Ireland Under-21s in friendly defeat to Wales

26 March 2021

Norwich City centre-back Andrew Omobamidele made his first appearance for Republic of Ireland Under-21s on Friday afternoon.

The Canaries youngster has risen through the ranks for his country and he's now made his bow at the highest development level at the age of just 18.

Ireland came from behind to beat their Welsh counterparts in a friendly at Colliers Park, in Wrexham.

An early goal by Joe Adams was cancelled out by Jonathan Afolabi late in the match, before an own goal from Morgan Boyes helped Ireland to victory.

Omobamidele's City teammate goalkeeper Sam Blair was an unused substitute.
