Looks like a real prospect, slotted in very comfortably whenever he's risen in level, whether its U17 to U19 for Ireland or Academy to U23 for Norwich.  Will probably be in our next U21 panel at this rate.

Does anyone have a sense of how far he is off a first team appearance for Norwich?

I think it was PM who said it and after seeing the video of the goal it rings true even more. Exciting prospect all right but we should curb our expectations of him until we see him in action against players with the same, if not greater, physicality than him. He looks huge at that age level.

Doing very well for Norwich at U23 though

I should have said first team football, U23's should be taken with a pinch of salt given it's uncompetitive nature.

Nice article on Adam Idah & Co.

He and Aaron Connolly  have been particularly prolific in PL2 - first and third top scorers in the league, respectively (Connolly was top scorer before he got injured).

Two more goals for the U21s today against China makes it 21 goals in 31 appearances at underage for Ireland.  

Must make him our highest cumulative scorer at underage of all time? 

Only 4 off being all-time top scorer for U21s of all time already.  He'll surely make that unless he gets drafted by Mick.  

Some going.

He's a ways off senior football based on todays showing. He was probably our worst player, nothing really came off for him bar the two penalties.
We're decent enough..

Give the lad a break he had a bad game. One bad game does not define an  u18 International player playing whats more or less a mans team . He showed great composure to score 2 lovley penos. 2 goals not bad for someone who wasnt at the races.

I'm not writing him off, nor am I judging him only off one performance. I've always had worries that his size and power comparative to his underage opponents would mask technical deficiencies, and I've seen little to alay those fears. He's got plenty of time to improve those areas of his game, but they will need to be addressed.

The other fellow Drinnan looked the better number 9 of them.

I though Idah had a good game:

1. arguably got the assist for the first goal - stepped over it/put off the defender who missed it and went out to an unmarked Elbouzedi.  Either way, he was in the right place at the right time, disrupted their defence and contributed to the goal.

2. similar in goal no 2 (I'm aware that Masterson won the header for the assist, but he was there or there abouts).

3.  held the ball up very well - showed for it every time, no fear; and laid it off to team-mates to get moves going.

4. scored two goals, albeit penos.

If he can keep up that level of performance and return, he'll be doing well.

The current all-time u21 top scorer is Robbie Brady with 7. Idah has scored 4 in 2 games.
