Albion midfielder Jayson Molumby is dreaming of playing his part in the Republic of Ireland’s crunch match against Slovakia on Thursday night.
A place in the Euro 2021 play-off final awaits the winner in Bratislava, with the 21-year-old desperate for a starting berth in Stephen Kenny’s side.
Asked if he had any fears about being involved, he said, “Definitely not fears. I would be absolutely relishing it like every single player in this squad.
“I’d be absolutely buzzing and you can get that sense in the squad. Everyone is just raring to go, it feels like there is a really good atmosphere.
“It would be the biggest game that I’ve ever played in. But it is the stuff that you dream of and work hard for over all those years.”
Molumby – who enjoyed a successful season-long loan at Championship side Millwall for the 2019/20 campaign – has also impressed Albion head coach Graham Potter and wants to prove he is worthy of making his first Premier League appearance.
“Graham has a great experience in developing young players and I’m trying to take it all on board, trying to put it all into practice every day. He’s really keen on me. He’s shown me that there’s probably a pathway for me and I’m really enjoying it.
“It’s every young lad’s dream to play in the Premier League and that must be my aim. If there’s a pathway and I feel I’m good enough or ready I’d like to try and push to get into the team.
“When you’re young, you probably need to be a bit more patient but if you get your chance, you take it.”
