Did he play as a wing back or as a centre back in this game? I know he can play both roles, but I think he has the pace and ability to make up in to an excellent full/wing back.

Going off injured is just typical for us at this point. Festy would have started these last 3 games and got his senior Ireland call up only for injury too.

No, he was U19s Captain.
I'd imagine he would have been promoted to the U21s before today anyway, but now should be nailed on (as long as the injury isn't serious).

 

Nothing to confirm he’s Irish like getting an unfortunate injury at a the wrong time. 

Big day for Abankwah and a big day for the LOI. Hopefully he can make a few more appearances next year as well and just gradually progress. He’s a kid and Udinese will view him as a long term project.

Hopefully he’ll get a look in next season. Our centre half’s like our keepers haven’t kicked on. Need other options.

Anyone watch the game?

Played 59mins, came off at 0-0 so hopefully that’s promising.

It is a bit surreal to see someone in the flesh playing in the LOI last year starting a Serie A match against Juventus. Clap

We have quite a few Irish lads from the youths up playing in decent leagues outside of Britain. Long may it continue
 

Especially when they have taken the plunge. Kerrigan doing his ACL was such a pity as he had hit the ground running. 



I seen hes back in training now, should get back into the team before the seasons out. Como still in with a shout for the payoffs too.

Up until his brain fart for the 19s against Greece he was comfortably the stand out player. What made it so frustrating. 

Nice to see him get a few minutes and it’s encouraging to see him consistently making the bench for Udinese with an established squad number as well. 

Looking forward to seeing what they do with him in the next 12 months.

The last top flight continental game(ie Spain, Italy or Germany) with two Irish players I could find was a la liga game between Osasuna and Sporting Gijon in December 1988 that featured Michael Robinson and Kevin Moran

But that's the only site I can find with the lineups

According to his Wiki:
"Abankwah was born in Waterford,[1] where he lived with his family before moving to Celbridge, then to Lucan before moving to Letterkenny where he began playing football with local side Letterkenny Rovers in 2011.[2][3] He later moved to Longford"

There will be quite a few counties claiming him if he ends up making it at senior level - Waterford, Kildare, Dublin, Donegal and the Longford - quite a nomadic childhood. I suppose Celbridge to Lucan isn't far in fairness, though it is two different counties.
