Cork native Adam Idah has taken to Instagram to express how much his first senior Republic of Ireland cap meant to him.
The former College Corinthians striker posted several photos of last night's match against Bulgaria and also shared a photograph of him as a child, dressed in an Irish jersey.
"Just a kid with a dream. A moment I will never forget, we keep fighting #COYBIG," the 19-year-old Norwich attacker wrote.
Two other Rebels, Bandon's Conor Hourihane and Bishopstown's John Egan also started against Bulgaria in Sofia last night.
Ireland boss Stephen Kenny praised his side’s efforts last night but acknowledged that there was "room for improvement".
The final result was a 1-1 draw at last night's Nations League opener.
