Thirty minutes before a ball had even been kicked at the Lansdowne Road arena, Tottenham Hotspur wonderkid Troy Parrott was nonchalantly lifting the ball into the back of the Sweden net to secure a 3-1 victory for the Ireland Under-21s in their respective European qualifying campaign.

"We’ll try to get him watched and if I think he is right, I will take him," said McCarthy when asked about Parrott’s chances of being elevated to the senior squad for next month’s away double-header in Georgia and then Switzerland.

Many key men were left out of the starting line-up, yet the one player who perhaps yielded the most attention was not even present at the Aviva Stadium as Ireland beat Bulgaria 3-1.

"What I love about Troy Parrott is that when you are left out of the team, that you come on and have an effect, you don’t come on and sulk, so fair play to him, I am delighted for him."

On a night that was essentially an open-audition for impact players for Ireland’s remaining three qualifiers, it was maybe more than a coincidence that Parrott actually came off the bench to score his brace in the Swedish victory.

"There were some really good performances.

The Dublin teenager – still just 17 years old – had already shown a striker's instinct to score the earlier equaliser with a fine, first-touch finish to set up victory for Stephen Kenny’s side.
