Wexford man comes on for Republic of Ireland to make Senior debut

A Wexford man was called into the Republic of Ireland Senior squad…

Republic of Ireland Senior Men’s manager, Stephen Kenny, called in a Wexford man into the 25-man squad for their upcoming qualifier games for Euro 2024.

After the team was named for the France game on Thursday, it was revealed that Festy Ebosele would start from the bench after being drafted into the squad.

Although Ireland did not get the victory, it was a memorable night for the Enniscorthy native and Wexford man, Festy Ebosele.

The defender came on as a second-half substitute to make his debut for the Republic of Ireland Senior team.

Ebosele had been playing Serie A football in Italy with Udinese and as reported earlier, he was being considered by the Irish manager, Stephen Kenny, due to injuries to some other Senior members of the squad and due to some of his impressive performances in the Serie A.

During his underage career, Festy progressed through the ranks at Moyne Rangers. Following that, he made a move to Frank Lampard’s Derby County before making his eventual move to the Serie A.

Festy Ebosele was the first Wexford man in the Ireland squad since Wexford native Kevin Doyle.

Next up for Ebosele is another huge encounter. Ireland will take on Netherlands this Sunday at home in the Aviva Stadium. They will be looking for a win to keep their Euro 2024 Qualification hopes alive.
