WATCH: Derry man produces the most un-Irish bit of skill in Northern Ireland v Republic clash

This is pure filth

Jordan McEneff, take a bow.

They don’t make 15-year-olds like they used to.

Republic of Ireland beat Northern Ireland 2-1 on Tuesday in the under-16 Victory Shield but it was a bit of magic from the north’s captain that lit up Edinburgh. Scotland are hosting the underage tournament this week and Paul Osman’s Irish side have already posted an impressive 4-0 win over Wales.

Despite falling on the wrong side of the result, Northern Ireland’s Derry influence produced the moment of the match when he left onlookers drooling on the YouTube live stream with a piece of skill that simply bamboozled the Republic full back.

McEneff takes the ball on the wing, flicks it behind his left heel before poking it beneath the defender’s legs to on past him.

The younger brother of Derry City prospect and former Spurs player Aaron McEneff, Jordan is making serious waves.

Derry school St. Columb’s College know all about what he’s capable of already. He’s not frightened to take on an effort from ridiculous distances.



And he’s not a stranger to a bit of success either.

Jordan McEneff. Remember the name. Arsenal have a player on their hands here.
