Drinan Wins Fifth Cap as Irish U21s Finish Fourth at Toulon
Saturday, 15th Jun 2019 15:08

Blues striker Aaron Drinan won his fifth Republic of Ireland U21 cap as his side were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Mexico in the third/fourth play-off at the Maurice Revello Toulon Tournament following a 0-0 draw, the second between the teams at the competition.

Drinan made his first U21s start before being replaced in the 77th minute with the game going straight to spot-kicks following the goalless 90 minutes.

The 21-year-old will now return to Town ahead of the start of pre-season training a week on Monday, Waterford having announced on Wednesday that his loan back in the League of Ireland, which was due to run to the end of the month, had been ended early.

Drinan’s seven goals for Waterford make him the League of Ireland Premier Division’s current joint-second top goalscorer.

The former Cork City youth player, who is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blues but has been on the bench on five occasions, is contracted to Town until the summer of 2021.

Another one of Mick McCarthy's Irish imports who has failed to impress can't think of one who has done well unless someone can put me right. He's done quite well at Waterford the Irish league is probably only vauxhall conference standard the Irish boys don't seem to travel well.

Aw come on, it’s over a year since MM left now. Whatever you think of him, and despite the fact that we were going to get relegated when he arrived, and did get relegated once he left, so he’s obviously the biggest criminal in football, are we really saying that he had a bad recruitment record? I’m not sure that the nationality of his recruits is particularly relevant....

Mick McCarthy never built for the future he bought in loans for short term so called success and let go some very good youngsters ie Marriot Matt Clarke ,Hourahan etc.

I'm hoping we get to see this lad this year, I think he's a real talent that the turnover in management has swept aside and would hate to see him become another Rhodes etc.

Linkboy13 - don't think mccarthy got rid of hourihane. Think you will find it was Jewell.

Nearly every witch or wizard dares not utter his unmentionable name, and refers to him instead with such expressions as "You-Know-Who", "He Who Must Not Be Named" or "the Dark Lord".

Needs to kick on and show more form than he has for Waterford as 8 goals in LOI as a poor league is nowhere near good enough
