It's 2021, we have lots of kids in the same boat and will do in the future. Nationality is complicated, think it's ridiculous to just want to take players who pin their colours go the mast early, just to satisfy some fans. 

It is more the tone of what he is saying. He just seems to want to play international and doesn't care whom for. Maybe I just want more emotion and less fact when players discuss their international intentions. If Kioso had said "well I was born in Ireland so I have an affinity for Ireland and my parents are Congolese so I have an affinity for DR Congo so it would be great to represent either" I would have liked the quotes a little more. But that's just me.

This lad has a high ceiling will be interesting to see does he break into Luton’s team this year after impressive loan spells last season. He is a right back mind Congo might be weaker in that department then us. https://t.co/dCZnvJeWAr



Does he live in a house with big rooms, because I can't see how he'd have a high ceiling otherwise. The lads 8 months younger than Danny McNamara and I'd safely say McNamara will probably go on to have the better career already establishing himself as part of Millwall's first team.aaa

He was really impressive in loan spells and there is half a chance he will break into Luton’s first team this season. If not he will get a loan at a high rank League 1 club. 

I meant high ceiling in our context (a potential top flight footballer in the next 5-7 years). McNamara has certainly achieved more at this point in time agreed. Kioso has a similar profile to McNamara in that he is progressing relentlessly. McNamara in 19/20 was playing League 2 football also but both have the fact they made it look more effortless as they stepped up (McNamara at St Johnstone, Kioso at Northampton)

Costa Rican left-back Kristopher Quesada of Arsenal is in discussions with the FAI about playing for our U17's.

He has an Irish mother.

As was said on here recently, lads with Irish mams tend to stick with us. Irish mammies Clap

Why are they always defenders or bog standard midfielders ...........throw a weapon of a striker our way now and again (and I don't mean weapon in the Seanie Maquire sense)

Going on nothing more than that video, the way he moves the ball in a couple of those clips is almost unreal. Worth watching how this one develops

Once he wants to represent for the right reasons and not just play underage to save himself a few flights.

If he ends up wanting to play for us permanently and is any good that’s as good as reason as any.

Reminds me of a young Seamus Coleman.

Did anyone ever find out whether O'Brien at Huddersfield is eligible? Fine player either way

Was checking out the opening game of the Bundesliga season to see if Conor Noss got on for Borussia Moenchengladback against Bayern (he didn't).

However, I could help but notice that an 18 year old from New York call Joseph Michael Scally was playing left-back for Borussia.

Likely some Irish heritage there.  Anyone heard of him or know that he's eligible?  Has played underage for the U.S. unsurprisingly...

Scouse maybe with a name like that. No doubt his girlfriend is a Scally WAG.

Will Keane off the mark with a late winner for Wigan today. If he can stay injury free I wouldn’t be surprised to see him have a big season. Very impressive since Christmas last year. Always had talent just horrible luck with injury’s

Peter Kioso seems to be making the step up to the Championship quite easily, getting great reviews for Luton tonight. Definitely someone we should be looking to bring into the setup given that he's a dual national, worth a look in a friendly at a minimum.

Val Adedokun's signed for Brentford. Going by Instagram, he's another we may be competing with Nigeria for.
