Troy Parrott said it was the best feeling he’s had in football and enjoyed the occasion as he played an important role in Ireland’s 3-1 come-from-behind win over New Zealand tonight.
The Dubliner provided an assist for Seáni Maguire to give Ireland the lead in the second-half.
Troy said he felt he played well.
The manager congratulated him on debut, the 17 year-old said: “It was unbelievable just to be out there.”
He says this experience will benefit him in the Under-21s, “if I go back down.”
“I felt unlucky that I didn’t come away with a goal but I’m happy to get an assist.”
Parrott says he’s happy with the strides he’s made this season and hopes to advance more this season and force his way into the Spurs starting XI.
