U18s lose to England in Murcia Tournament…17/11/2018

Ireland went down to a three one defeat by England in their second contest at the Murcia Tournament in Spain early this Saturday afternoon. Half time substitute Adam Idah gave Ireland the lead three minutes after the re-start but England responded with a brace of goals on 75 and 79 minutes and rounded things off with a third in added  time. Despite the defeat, Head Coach Jim Crawford expressed satisfaction with much of the performance delivered by his charges. Belgium and Holland played out a two all draw in the other contest later in the afternoon.
Ireland will complete their challenge against Holland at 4pm on Monday afternoon with Belgium and England meeting at the same time.
