FAI targeting our footballing talent

It shows you the true colours of the FAI as they continue to target youngsters from a nationalist background in Northern Ireland.

Since the disgraceful FIFA ruling that youngsters from here had the right to choose Northern Ireland or the Republic, it has been used by the south to target young nationalist and Roman Catholic lads to switch - even though they have come through the Northern Ireland ranks. The IFA should pull out of the Setanta Cup and Carling four-nation tournaments.

Local politicians - especially those who believe we are nation in our own right - should be protesting at FAI sectarianism.
