Jack Byrne has long been earmarked as a future international, putting in an array of dazzling displays at youth level.

The 19 year old starlet is currently on loan at Dutch side Cambuur from Manchester City, and has put in a number of impressive performances, the latest of which saw him scoop up the man of the match accolade. 

Currently a member of the Irish u-21 set-up, Byrne showed a clinical touch to fire home a late winner for the relegation threatened Eredivisie club against Zwolle.
