Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers has been named in Republic of Ireland’s squad for their upcoming training camp in Portugal.
It is the second time the 19-year-old has been included in Mick McCarthy’s squad after he was originally called up for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia in March.
Travers only made his debut for Bournemouth against Tottenham in the Premier League last weekend, but he produced a man of the match display as the Cherries claimed a 1-0 win at the Vitality Stadium.
Howe was singing the praises of Travers after the game and believes he has a very bright future at the club, although a loan deal could be on the cards for next season.
“It was a great display from him, he’s someone we really do believe in,” Howe said. “He’s got great temperament and attitude to the game.

He kicked the ball well, made some saves and impressed with his all-around game management. “It’s a nice problem to have and a decision I’ll have to make in the summer, in terms of what to do with all the goalkeepers we have.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
