QPR's Frankie Sutherland Called Up for Republic of Ireland U-17 Tournament in Poland

Football Association of Ireland
- Under-17 squad named for Syrenka CupThursday, 20 August 2009 16:15

Republic of Ireland Under-17 manager Sean McCaffrey has today announced a squad of 18 players for the Syrenka International Cup in Łódź, Poland from 30 August - 5 September 2009.

The eight-nation friendly tournament will act as preparation for the squad's Under-17 UEFA qualifying campaign which begins with the first phase qualifiers in Bulgaria from 27 September - 2 October when the Irish face Latvia, Sweden and the host nation aiming to secure the top-two finish in the group necessary for qualification into the Elite section.

Ireland will meet Russia in their opening Syrenka International Cup fixture on Tuesday, 1 September in Zgierz (kick-off 4.30pm, local time). Depending on the result of the other Group B game on Day 1 of the event, the Irish will then face either Sweden or Poland the following day, Wednesday 2 September, in Łódź / Kutno (kick-off 4.30pm, local time).

McCaffrey's young charges conclude their schedule on Friday, Friday 4 September by taking on one of the nations from Group A which contains Bulgaria, Romania, Denmark and Ukraine.

The squad, his first selected by McCaffrey since taking charge of this group, features 12 players to have won caps under Vincent Butler at Under-16 level last season. They include goalkeeper Sean McDermott, who completed his move from to Arsenal from IK Vaag in the summer, and defender Sean McGinty, a close-season signing of Manchester United from Charlton Athletic.

New to International football are six players, amongst them highly-rated Queen's Park Rangers midfielder Frankie Sutherland and Graham Burke, who is rewarded for his displays at the Foyle Cup in Derry last month when he helped the FAI Emerging Talent squad reach the final.

Ireland boss Sean McCaffrey is expecting his squad to be tested in their three matches at the Syrenka Cup.

"We accepted the invitation for this tournament because we were assured of quality opposition, which is what our players need with the first-phase qualifiers fast approaching," he said.

"The tournament serves an important purpose as it allows us to put our ideas across to the squad early in the season whilst also providing the opportunity to integrate new players into the set-up.

"This is a chance for players to convince me they're worthy of a place in the squad for the qualifiers. Competition for places in this selection was high and, at this stage, no player is out of contention for making the final squad that travels to Bulgaria next month."
