Town youngster plays in friendly win
Huddersfield Town’s young defender Danny Kane earned his first Republic of Ireland Under-18 cap in a 1-0 international friendly win in Luxembourg this evening.
As reported by fai.ie, Danny setup a goal in the 28th minute of the game in Hobscheid, but it was unfortunately ruled out for offside. Despite this, the away side scored the only goal of the game in the 56th minute and Danny played the full 90, helping his side keep a clean sheet.
Head Coach Paul Doolin’s side play a second friendly in Luxembourg on 4 June; 6pm kick-off UK time in Schifflange.
