Tottenham teenager Troy Parrott is set to feature for the Republic of Ireland in their Euro 2020 qualification decider against Denmark, and club team-mate Christian Eriksen has been impressed with young striker.

The 17-year-old forward has made only one senior appearance for Spurs but Ireland boss Mick McCarthy has hinted he will be involved from the bench after impressing on his debut against New Zealand last week.

Ireland are top of Group D and will qualify at Denmark’s and Eriksen’s expense  by virtue of a better head-to-head record if they win in Dublin.

I hope Troy plays as it will be good fun to see him on the pitch,” said Eriksen, as reported by The Irish Examiner.

“For a player so young, he is a great striker who makes brilliant runs and scores with excellent finishes.

“Troy is not a shy guy. He stands his ground against defenders.

“I read that he did very well on his Ireland debut against New Zealand and I expect him to play lots more matches for Ireland and Tottenham.”
