He looks like he could be top class once he irons those silly mistakes. Not many teenagers playing for their national side and saving their skin

Excellent tonight and thought Kenny bringing him to the fans and raising his hand was a seriously nice touch. Fair play to Gavin Clap

His distribution was sheer class. Either our players were in position quicker, or else he seemed to speed up his decision making when h was making passes, wasn't taking anywhere near as long to make the pass last night compared to other games.

Some great saves too.

Definitely has what it takes to have a good career in the EPL.

His passing was fantastic. He must have been a decent outfield player.

Makes super saves but has an error in him. I don't get a feeling of reassurance when he's playing. A bit David James like but he has much better distribution. 

Like others   I feel Kelleher is better but I suspect Gav has taken ownership of the shirt for now.

Were well covered between the sticks.

Kelleher has never had a run of games. If he does, he'll make mistakes too, because he's a young and inexperienced keeper.

He's not as commanding as Bazunu either. And let's not forget he's also 3 years older than Bazunu.

He's an incredible prospect for us. Great to see. Him, O'Shea, Omobamidele, Collins - could be a great foundation to build a team on there.

Bazunu got an opportunity and took it, I don't see that changing as his performances have been excellent.

He's young, so I'm not too worried about the mistakes he's made. In terms of the passing, I thought last night he made better decisions on when to just clear the the lines and when to pass it. Himself and Omobamidele seemed to trust eachother with ball at feet as well, there were a couple times a Serbian forward was pressing and they managed to get out between the two of them. I'm also not worried about when he came flying out that time and McClean got it out for a corner, you see Ederson do that at least once a year. I think he'll learn as he gets older and those mistakes will be less frequent but will never be gone completely, he's just that type of keeper.

What I'm a bit worried about with him is crosses/commanding his area. Maybe that will come with experience too and confidence, but he seems a bit small for a keeper. Himself and Kelleher are the same height so maybe it's a presence thing, which as I say I hope will come as he gets older. I know Mendy at Chelsea is a bit small for a keeper but you always see him stand out at corners and that. I worry sometimes for corners that Bazunu looks like he might be lost in amongst the crowd. 

But he's been great and his interviews are great too, just seems like a great young lad, fingers crossed he continues on this trajectory

Bazunu is excellent from corners/crosses! Has been very commanding no idea what you’ve been watching.

Ah it's not every time or anything, but things like when he dropped that one against Azerbaijan and got away with it, and last night he punched a Serbian corner but it just went up in the air and didn't clear our box. They're only small occasional things but those small things worry me more than the other mistakes some folks are mentioning. Like I said I hope it'll come with more experience and that, it's only nitpicking I think he's class

Lads here comparing him to David JamesLOLLOLLOL, saying he’s too small, his distribution isn’t as good as Kellehers Confused and he doesn’t command his box well enough.

He’s not the finished article by any means. But Jesus lads give it a rest. We’ve a genuine star in the making here. I say most of you are sh*t craic to go for a pint with

Kelleher is older than Gianluigi Donnarumma. If he's happy to be Liverpool second choice into his mid 20s that's his decision but if he wants to play for Ireland he should be trying to get out

His career trajectory is similar enough to Shay Given's : both made their debuts for Ireland at 19 and immediately established themselves as the No.1.

Interesting that he is a former outfield player, it probably explains why he is so good with his feet and an excellent passer of the ball for a goalkeeper.

The only think that Bazunu is missing is that he’s not from Donegal!!
