Portsmouth Academy winger makes Northern Ireland start 

Have your say

Eoin Teggart started for Northern Ireland under-17s today.

The Pompey Academy winger featured from the outset in his country’s 1-0 friendly defeat to Greece at Shamrock Park.

It was the second time the 17-year-old represented the Green and White Army this week.

He came off the bench in Northern Ireland’s 3-1 loss to Greece on Tuesday.

Teggart moved to Fratton Park from Cliftonville for an undisclosed fee last summer.

He’s made 11 appearances for Mark Kelly’s young Blues, scoring one goal.
