Conor Clifford added to Ireland squad

9 October 2012 6,236 views No Comment Written by Ronan

Chelsea midfielder Conor Clifford has been called-up to the Republic of Ireland squad as cover for the upcoming qualifiers against Germany and Faroe Islands.

Clifford was called up by Giovanni Trapattoni for last August’s friendly with Croatia, but did not feature in that game. He has 10 caps for Ireland under-21s, despite not having played for Chelsea. The 21-year-old Dubliner spent time on loan at Portsmouth earlier this season, but returned to his parent club after just 2 games due to Pompey’s financial troubles.

Clifford will join up with the Irish squad tomorrow morning as midfield cover due to the fact that Trapattoni is expected to start 3 CMs against Germany on Friday.
