In June 2023 teenager Callum Marshall earned his first call-up into the Senior national squad after impressing International boss Michael O’Neill during two training camps.
The West Ham United striker was named by O’Neill in a 27 man panel for the EURO 2024 qualifiers against Denmark and Kazakhstan despite still awaiting his first team debut for David Moyes charges.
Marshall, who came through the IFA JD Academy, began his career with Linfield and made his debut for the Blues aged just 16 years and 311 days in a Co Antrim Shield match against Ards in October 2021.
In January 2022, Premier League side West Ham United secured Marshall on a two year Scholarship deal but such was his rapid progress the 17-year-old signed his first professional contract with Hammers just ten months later.
2022/23 was a real breakthrough campaign for the Glengormley youngster who as well as winning the U18 Premier League with the South-London outfit, also scored in a 5-1 FA Youth Cup Final victory over Arsenal.
Marshall, who managed six goals in just seven matches for the Northern Ireland U19’s, finished the season with an amazing 24 goals in just 23 appearances for the Hammers youth team.
Made his debut as a late substitute in the 1-0 EURO 2024 defeat to Denmark in June 2023 and nearly capped his first senior appearance with a goal only to see it disallowed by VAR.
