Troy Parrott has been ruled out of the Ireland squad ahead of their opening game of the 2019 UEFA European Under-17 Championships and Roland Idowu will now link up with Ireland squad.

Colin O'Brien's Ireland open their campaign on Friday at Tallaght Stadium as they take on Greece in their first of three group games.

Southampton attacker Idowu will join the squad for their third session of the week at the FAI National Training Centre.

Head coach O'Brien had been monitoring the situation of Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Troy Parrott, but due to medical advice the Dubliner will not be part of this year's tournament.

Idowu will now link up with a squad working hard to make the most of home advantage as they begin their task of making it out of Group A by firstly taking on Greece, before the focus turns to Czech Republic and Belgium next week.
