The u21 national team really put out a statement at the Toulon Tournament as we beat France 1-0.
Indeed, the French are the hosts for the competition and obviously have some great stars so to go and beat them is obviously a positive.
It’s definitely a nice pick-up after what happened with the senior lads against Peru earlier this week and as a club we’ve been represented by some of the young boys.
Michael Johnston is one of them, then, and he posted this message on Twitter after the win:
What a result, great shift from the boys ⚽️ https://t.co/TlWmtNAMZO

He’s a bright young player with talent and I’m looking forward to seeing how he progresses next season.
Brendan might decide to use him sparingly in the near future but there’s clearly some talent about him.
Another exciting player looks to be coming through the ranks, then.
