Earlier this year, Manchester United winger Robbie Brady was named Ireland’s U-21 Player of the Year and last week became their highest ever scorer at this level.
Brady was called up to the first team for tonight’s game to make his début against Oman. He scored a good goal to put them 2-0 in their eventual 4-1 victory.
20-year-old Brady, who spent last season in Hull’s first team, has been at United since he was 16.
