U18s defeat Belgium in Tournament opener…15/11/2018

Our U18 side defeated Belgium by two goals to one in their opening contest of the Invitation Tournament taking place in Murcia, Spain this week. Ireland took an early lead through Glasgow Celtic midfielder Barry Coffey, who captained the side today. Belgium equalised on the half-hour mark  through a penalty but Ireland won this very competitive encounter with their second half penalty, converted by Aston Villa striker Tyriek Wright.In the other opening fixture, Holland and England played out a two all draw.
We next face England, again in the Pinatar Arena, at 1pm (Irish time) on Saturday afternoon.
