This marks the first involvement of the player in any senior Leicester squad.
Irishman Shane Flynn could make his senior competitive debut for Leicester this evening. The 19-year-old has impressed for Leicester’s youth sides over the past couple of years, leading to his inclusion in the Foxes’ Europa League matchday squad to take on Zorya.
Bray Wanderers fans may be familiar with Flynn. He was academy product of the Wicklow club, making a handful of first team appearances before his move abroad.
Flynn can take inspiration from his compatriot Caoimhin Kelleher making his European debut for Liverpool yesterday. He produced a man of the match performance in the absence of regular first-choice goalkeeper, Alisson.
Leicester have already qualified for the knockout stages, meaning they may be willing to give some of their younger players a run out. There’s a good chance Flynn might feature tonight given 5 substitutions are permitted during this Europa League campaign.
For further information, we profiled Flynn as an Irish teenager to watch earlier this year.
Subs: Jakupović, Stolarczyk, Fofana, Nelson, Fuchs, Thomas, Flynn, Mendy, Leshabela, Albrighton, Maddison, Pérez.#UEL #ZrlLei
