Former Limerick FC star named in Ireland squad

FORMER Limerick FC winger Chiedozie Ogbene has been named in Stephen Kenny’s Ireland squad to play Andorra and Hungary this Summer.

Ogbene played for Limerick in the 2017 season and scored eight goals in 32 games.

The blistering winger lit up Market’s Field with his sharp dribbling and lightning quick feet in a team that included the likes of Rodrigo Tosi, Shane Duggan and Bastien Hery. The Super Blues finished 7th in the Premier Division that year with Ogbene central to their bright performances.

Ogbene was also eligbible for Nigeria but opted for the Boys in Green and has been eligble for selection for the last twelve months.

The 24 year-old left Limerick for Brentford in 2018 and currently plys his trade for Rotherham who finished 23rd in the Championship this season.
