Robbie Brady will start for the Republic of Ireland tomorrow evening when they take on Faroe Islands in their crucial World Cup qualifier.
The 20-year-old made his debut for Ireland only recently in a friendly against Oman but an impressive performance, including a wonderful goal and a smart assist, made him an instant hit with the team.
After their 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Germany, Giovanni Trapattoni is obviously looking towards new options in order to keep Ireland’s qualifying campaign alive.
It’s been a fantastic year so far for Brady. He joined up with the senior squad for the 2012 Tour and showed his versatility by slotting in at left back as Sir Alex tried out some new options prior to Alexander Buttner’s signing.
Sir Alex has today confirmed that three bids from Championship clubs to take Brady on loan have been rejected because he is in the “first team plans”, pointing towards Brady being included in the League Cup games and with Chelsea the next fixture on 31 October, it would certainly be a tough game for him to come into.
Having been at Manchester United since 2008, he has been working his way patiently through the lower ranks and will definitely have a chance to impress with the first team this season and if he can use the international fixture against Faroe Islands as a platform, that could be sooner than he expected.
