Adam Idah makes his Premier League debut at 18 only

Few months after his participation at the Maurice Revello Tournament, Adam Idah played on this Wednesday his first minutes in the Premier League with Norwich.

"It's a great feeling to score two goals for his country". After his impressing display against China (4-1) on 3rd June at the Maurice Revello Tournament 2019, the Irish striker Adam Idah was a happy man.

Few months later, the 18-year-old striker is still happy. But for another reason : the Ireland U21 international made his Premier League debut on this Wednesday during the 1-1 draw between Norwich and Crystal Palace (1-1). The Canaries youngster imitates his fellow countrymen Aaron Connolly who also made his debut in the English top-flight after taking part in the Maurice Revello Tournament 2019.

«I don’t like to praise the young lads too much, but him playing is a sign of our way », said Norwich head coach Daniel Farke at the end of the game.

Meanwhile, the Irish youngster was over the moon. “I found out on Tuesday after training that I’d be involved and I was delighted, so I went home and rang my family straight away. They watched the game so I’m buzzing”, he told to the Norwich official website.

The year 2020 got off to a great start for Idah !
