Another Derry lad switches allegiance but this boy has serious potential
The Republic of Ireland have a gem on their hands here.
Have you heard of him? Well you might have, as he produced a ludicrous piece of skill for the Northern Ireland U-16s against the Republic of Ireland a few months back which received some major plaudits.
Good lord, Jordan McEneff.

The match was a part of the Victory Shield, an underage tournament involving the Republic, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The Republic went on to win the tournament after winning all their games, conceding just one goal in the process.
McEneff has recently switched his international allegiance to the Republic of Ireland and he made the perfect debut with his new international side in a 2-1 win over Hungary at Ballinasloe AFC Stadium.
McEneff, who spurned a good opportunity in the first half when his 20-yard effort was hit straight at the goalkeeper, got the winning goal for Paul Osam's side when he headed home from a corner kick.
Ireland will face Hungary again this week to complete their friendly fixtures with Attila Belvon’s men.
McEneff looks set to have a big future, the youngster has recently signed for Arsenal's academy so we hope his fledgling career will be further nurtured at the famous London club.
