Southend's Ferdinand wins Republic of Ireland U19 call

Southend United

Southend United midfielder Kane Ferdinand has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad for the Under-19 European Championships.

The competition takes place in Romania from 20 July and the squad will hold a training camp in Italy next week.

Ferdinand, 18, will miss most of Southend's pre-season schedule to take part in the tournament.

He broke into the Southend side in the second half of last season and was soon called up for under-19 duty.

The Republic of Ireland begin their campaign against Greece on the opening day, before further group games against the Czech Republic and hosts Romania.
