Academy graduate Troy, just 17, started and claimed an assist in a 63-minute shift in the Republic's 3-1 win at the Aviva Stadium.
Troy was denied by New Zealand goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic before setting up his team's second goal for Sean Maguire as ROI came from 1-0 down to win 3-1. They now face Denmark in a crucial Euro 2020 qualifier on Monday.
Staying with Euro 2020 qualifiers, Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko remained on the bench as France clinched their place in the finals with a 2-1 win against Moldova. Turkey's failure to beat Iceland in Group H saw Les Bleus home.
