Idah playing ahead of Long and Houriane

Kenny clearly trusting in him and youth.

Seen some Ireland fans on social media rather upset with this choice however

Becoming a theme of his isnt it? One on one clear cut chance against a keeper and somehow messes it up..

Yep, a year ago I'd have put my house on him tucking that away. Idah giving their back 3  a good stretching.

Happy for Teemu and Adam to get some more minutes in their legs; ideally both will score today, Pukki does need to slot a few to get his mojo back.

Ha ha , and this is the new , possession based style under a young manager.  Ireland had 60% possession v Bulgaria the other night. Having said that, it wasnt pretty.

Some fantastic link up play from Pukki to get the goal for Finland.

 

And Idah off, not done much. Bald fraud McGoldrick on, binner on for a Nodge not something you like to see.

Just now, mannings bandy legs said:

Matter of opinions, but feel Pukki's having a very good 2nd half. Movement and linkup play is excellent. Unlucky not to score with a smart turn and shot.

To give him credit he did everything right except score.

 

Had quite a few shots saved well (including a fantastic mid air kick that any other day would have been a world class goal) and took quite a few times first time chances that just missed.

 

He was also heavily involved in some fantastic link up Tiki-taka style play that resulted in Finlands winning goal too.

 

I'll be fair and give him a 7/10.

 

Idah on the other hand.. Sadly pretty invisible.

....just to add...Daniel O'Shaugnessy. Did he walk into the wrong dressing room and no one noticed!!!!!!😆

Not sure why Idah is really even playing, other than to lock him into playing for Ireland. He’s started 2 competitive matches in his career. At this stage, it’s a bit of a stretch to expect him to look really good in a pretty dire international team.

Good that they got a run out, Pukki seemed to play pretty well in the second half in particular if with no goals.

The BBC put something up about the O’Shaughnessy feller - has a parent from each country and chose to play for Finland...certainly he and Robert Taylor don’t have what you’d call ‘classic’ Finnish names!

Idah looks to be a bit of a way short from being ready to be Ireland's no. 9. I do think it's a shame he didn't get a loan spell last season. Could have done him wonders. 

I think there's an argument for getting him out to a top L1 side, keeping Pukki, Hugil and Sinani as the three strikers this season.
