Northern Ireland took on Cyprus today in the Nations League and drew two all, but before the game kicked off you could see clearly that Liverpool’s Conor Bradley wasn’t signing the Northern Ireland anthem. The 18 year old plays right back for Liverpool and the North of Ireland and he clearly didn’t fancy singing God Save the Queen.
He's also a Catholic and use to play GAA so he definitely wouldn't be

Possibly but some catholics are able to see past it and play for Northern Ireland for all the right reasons instead of politics personally idk if I would want to but hats off to him

The North always compete extremely well at International level, it’s an awful shame politics can’t be put to the side like the rugby and the south and the north team up and Ireland would have a much better chance in qualifying for major tournaments.
At still only 18 years of age, Bradley will surely have a bright future ahead of him.
