Canice Carroll has become the latest Brentford play to earn an international call-up. The Brentford B defender, who can also play in midfield, has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for the prestigious 2019 Maurice Revello Tournament, better known as the Toulon Tournament. Ireland are sending an Under-21 squad to the event and Canice was named in the squad yesterday.
The tournament will be played next month, and Ireland are in Group C with Bahrain, China and Mexico. Other countries involved include England, France and Brazil. Ireland will play games on June 3, 6 and 9. There will then be further games to decide the final placings.
It is a first Under-21 call-up for Canice, who joined Brentford B from Oxford United last summer and spent the second half of the season on loan at Swindon Town. He has represented his country at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 level, playing 20 games in total.
