READ | Kayode named as latest Millers player to be included in international fixtures this summer

26 May 2022

Rotherham United forward Joshua Kayode is the next player to be confirmed as called up to represent his nation and will once again turn out for the Republic of Ireland U21s over the summer.

Kayode’s inclusion in the Ireland youth setup follows news earlier this week that winger Chiedozie Ogbene would be included in the senior side for their Nations League fixtures.

The 22-year-old has been a regular in Jim Crawford’s sides and has once again been named to this time compete in the upcoming UEFA European Under-21 Championship Qualifiers in June. 

Ireland will face Bosnia & Herzegovina on Friday, June 3 and Montenegro on Bank Holiday Monday, June 6 in Tallaght Stadium. They then head to Ascoli where they take on Italy in their final game in Group F on Tuesday, June 14.

Ireland head into the June international window off the back of an impressive 2-0 away win over Sweden in Borås. They are set to be backed by their biggest crowds of the campaign in Tallaght as they look to become the first U21s side to reach a European Championship Finals.
