Harry Charsley hopes Republic of Ireland U21s maintain top spot

Harry Charsley is confident the Republic of Ireland Under-21s can end 2017 sitting at the top of their European Championship qualification pile.

Ireland head into Tuesday evening's clash with Norway in Drammen leading Group 5 by a point from Germany after victories over Kosovo, Azerbaijan and Israel, who they beat 4-0 at Tallaght Stadium last month.

The Norwegians, who saw off their German counterparts 3-1 a day later, are the only team to deny Noel King's men full points to date with a 0-0 draw in Dublin in October, but Everton midfielder Charsley is confident they can add another win to their tally.

He told FAI TV: "It's the aim, that's for sure. We've had some fantastic results so far this campaign and we'll be looking to bring that into tomorrow night.

"Norway are a good, technical team, like they showed in Tallaght last month, so we know we need to be at our very best to get the result we need.

"The conditions will be different from what we're used to, but the training has been good since we landed and we're all really looking forward to it."

Those conditions could see temperatures drop to -3C on the 3G surface at the Marienlyst Stadium, where Ireland will be without injured duo Reece Grego-Cox and Ryan Delaney.

But 21-year-old Charsley said: "It would be a huge three points if we can get them and give us a great lift going into next year's fixtures. We've got plenty of quality throughout the squad, so hopefully we can show that."
