It’s not often someone so young captures attention SO fast, but this lifelong Aston Villa fan joined his home club at the tender age of six and, in his third appearance for the first team, scored his first ever goal in claret and blue on September 13, 2015!
And he continues to keep English football on the edge of it’s collective seat, waiting to see if he will play for his home country. He has represented the Republic of Ireland at the international level since 2011, and despite recent conversations with England manager Roy Hodgson in August 2015, the young lad has yet to make an official decision.
To be perfectly frank, I’m not used to covering someone so young – with his teenage antics and that hair, he looks like he would fit in quite comfortably as a member of One Direction! But that genuine enthusiasm is also what makes him so enjoyable to watch.. and those legs.. have you seen his calves?? I think this kid has a future as an up and coming Soccer Hotness to watch!
