With the vast array of second generation Irish that have played for us over they years I was wondering who where the ones that we missed out on. Off the top of my head I can think of,

 
1.Wayne Rooney
2.Rio Ferdinand
3.Anton Ferdinand
4.Jamie O'Hara
5.Kevin Nolan
6.Kieran Richardson
7.Tim Cahill
8.Lucas Neill *
9.Lee Trundle
10.Landon Donovan
11.Darren Fletcher
12.Kevin Keegan
13.
14.
15.
16.
17.
18.
 
* Neill has ancestors from Co.Down so I don't know what the story is there.
Can people add names to the list if they think of any...

Both Martin Keown's parents were Irish.
Steve Bruce - parent(s) are from the North.

Personally I want to see Irish people playing for Ireland not some player looking to further their career.

I would be of the same opinion but I was just wondering what players could have played for us

How is di Stefano on the list and Brown isnt.

Jaysus the Blond Arrow played for everyone but Ireland - Argentina, Colombia and Spain.
