Tommie Hoban has again been called up to the Republic of Ireland Under-19 squad.

The 19-year-old, who will turn 20 on Thursday, is in line to face Czech Republic as preparations for the UEFA Championships elite qualifying round begin.

The defender is enjoying a strong season for Watford, having featured 18 times for the Hornets this season. He penned his long-term commitment to the club after signing an extension to his professional contract in the summer of 2012.

Hoban has represented Republic of Ireland at both Under-17 and Under-19 level and they will play the Czechs twice in three days as the men in green look to improve on their impressive qualifying campaign.

Should be in the first team never mind Under 19's! Would we swap him for Darren O'Dea or Sean St Ledger? No chance.

Maybe out of date concerns about the long ball they think WFC still play or similar b0110cks. If you think that is crass then no more than someone thinking we "own" MV and offering £3m.

I don't want him making headlines for the ROI first team.
Let him just keep quietly plugging away for us until we are promoted to the Premier League (this season) and it is less likely that his head will get turned by unscrupulous agents/ clubs throwing money and empty promises at him.
