Troy Parrott: Tottenham teenage striker included in Republic of Ireland squad
Tottenham teenager Troy Parrott has been handed a first Republic of Ireland call-up for next month's games against Switzerland and Bulgaria.
The Dublin-born striker, 17, is yet to play a competitive first-team game for Spurs but has represented the Republic at under-17 and under-19 level.
Fit-again James McCarthy is in line for his first Republic game since late 2016 after being named in the 40-man squad.
There is also a first senior call-up for Doncaster winger Kieran Sadlier.
Parrott made his senior debut for Tottenham during their summer tour of Asia last month while his youth career with the Republic has included a hat-trick for the under-19s against the Faroe Islands last October.
Midfielder McCarthy moved from Everton to Crystal Palace earlier this month and is aiming to re-establish himself in the Republic squad after a long period of injury.
Mick McCarthy's side host Switzerland in a Euro 2020 qualifier on 5 September before taking on Bulgaria in a friendly five days later in Dublin.
The Republic lead the Group D table after earning three wins and a draw in their opening four games.
