Scully gets call for Ireland

THE FAI appear to have won the race to recruit West Ham prospect Anthony Scully as he has been named in the Ireland U17 squad.

The Hammers prospect has a strong Irish pedigree as his Dublin-born dad, Tony, was a regular in the green shirt, winning 10 U21 caps (1994-97). Youngster Anthony was being chased by the FA and was last month named in the English U16 squad. Yet Ireland U17 boss Tom Mohan has now included Scully in his panel for friendies away to Croatia (February 24-26).
