Young forward selected for FIFA World Cup qualifiers and friendly

Troy Parrott has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad for their upcoming fixtures in the March international break.

Head coach Stephen Kenny has given Troy the nod ahead of games with Serbia, Luxembourg and Qatar later this month.

The Boys in Green face Serbia and Luxembourg in FIFA World Cup qualifiers before taking on Qatar in a friendly.

No games have been played in the European section of World Cup qualifying yet, with Ireland joined in their group by Azerbaijan and Portugal along with their two upcoming opponents.

Stadion Rajko Mitić in Belgrade hosts the meeting with Serbia on Wednesday, 24 March, with Aviva Stadium in Dublin then the venue for the visit of Luxembourg three days later. 

The friendly with Qatar will take place at a neutral venue in Hungary on Tuesday, 30 March.

Troy will join up with his international teammates on Sunday, 21 March, a day after Town's trip to Portsmouth. He will therefore miss Blues' away fixture with Wigan on Saturday, 27 March but will return to the Club before a home clash with Bristol Rovers on Friday, 2 April.

The 19-year-old forward, who scored his first professional goal when Town hosted Plymouth at the weekend, has previously earned two caps for his country - making his debut in a friendly against New Zealand in November 2019.
