Crystal Palace midfielder Sean Scannell has been called up to the Republic of Ireland U19 squad for their European Championship qualifier in Tallinn against Estonia on 9th September.

ROI Manager Don Givens said on the FA of Ireland’s website that he was delighted to name such a strong squad for the fixture:

“Estonia are a good side, they work very hard and will make it difficult for us, especially since they are at home. It’s a tricky fixture for us but I’m very happy with the squad I have.”

“A lot of the players are experienced at this level having been regulars with the Under-21’s for some time now. We also have a few new faces in the squad, so I am looking forward to getting a close look at those players.”

“This is a strong squad, one that is certainly capable of making an impact in the European Championship qualifiers.”

Sean Scannell was awarded Championship Apprentice of the Year at the 2009 Football League Awards ceremony in March.
