McCarthy Impressed By Browne Ahead Of Bulgaria Friendly

10 September 2019

Alan Browne will be hoping to add to his four Republic of Ireland caps tonight when Mick McCarthy's side take on Bulgaria in a friendly in Dublin.

Browne was a late substitute against Switzerland on Thursday evening and he's been impressing the Republic of Ireland boss in training ahead of Tuesday's game.

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, McCarthy said: "Alan Browne has impressed me actually this last trip.

"It was a shame for him last time, He'd been carrying injuries from before, I don't think he was that confident and he ended up getting another knock and he had to go home.

"But he's impressed me in training. I've been really impressed with him, I was talking about him a lot last year because I think he got 12 goals.

“We've not had that many goals in this campaign so if you could add them from midfield it would be great.”

McCarthy is expected to make a number of changes to his side for this evening's international friendly at the Aviva Stadium and Browne could well be in line for a start for the boys in green.

We will have updates from the game on social media should Browne feature, with reaction here on PNE.Com.

This is the final game of the international break for Ireland with Browne returning to Springfields on Thursday morning ahead of Saturday's clash with Brentford at Deepdale.
