Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy was left impressed as he watched Kieran Sadlier help Rovers to victory over Peterborough United
McCarthy is considering his options for the Republic’s European Championship qualifying games against Georgia and Switzerland in October, and Sadlier did his hopes of a call-up no harm as he struck the second goal in the 2-0 victory against his former club.
“I’ll name the squad for Georgia and Switzerland on Tuesday week and I wanted to have a look at Kieran for myself,” McCarthy told the Football Association of Ireland’s website.
“Terry Connor had heard good things about him from the Doncaster coaching staff and our scouts had seen him but I wanted to have a look at him with my own two eyes. I know all about the other options available to us so this trip to Doncaster made sense.
"Kieran played well. He’s been operating on the right side of late having started the season as a centre-forward and he took his goal well.”
