I already had two strikers on the bench so him and Folan missed out.

Very interesting point. Wonder what the reason for that is? You would have thought better chance of Polish heritage players. Someone will do a doctorate on this I think!

Either way it's great to see. He was outstanding on Wednesday.

Don't a lot of Polish go home eventually after spending 9/10/whatever years here? Thought Nigerian would be the biggest expat community here by far by now. Big enough Brazilian communities in pockets as well.
Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.

Not sure about Dublin but certainly around the country there would be far more Poles and Lithuanians than Nigerians. Maybe part of the reason that so many Nigerians are coming through is that they're moreso based in Dublin so more likely to play soccer than other areas where they lads might play hurling or whatever.

Then again, Ebosele is from Wexford, Ogbene and Idah are from Cork so it's not entirely Dublin based either.

The Polish community only really began to grown probably post 2004 when they joined the EU and were freely able to move to Ireland. so a lot of their children wouldn't be really old enough yet. We might see a couple more begin to emerge in next few years as they reach u15/16s and u17s level.

Where as with the African community, they began to move here a couple years earlier in the early to mid 90s. So a lot of their kids are well into their late teens now / early 20s now.

Just look at the u15/16s age group now sure.. they're beginning to pop up

Polish

Olaf Boruc (Shamrock Rovers)
Hugo Gwiazdowski (Shamrock Rovers)
Patryck Swieczka Andrzejczak (Cork City)

Other Eastern European names

Orlandas Jakas (Shamrock Rovers)
Feilim Dikcius (St.Patrick’s Athletic)
Ivan Graminschil (St. Patrick’s Athletic)

What a performance from this man - strong in the tackle, good in the air and with the ball at his feet. The next Paul McGrath?! 😬😁

Class. If that shot had found the top corner....

Between himself and Idah you'd hope their performances for Ireland will have given Farke something to think about

Omobamidele pure class tonight, some of his passes were excellent.
