Head Coach Tom Mohan saw his Republic of Ireland U19 side go down to a one nil defeat in this Friday evening’s friendly international against Denmark, in the Sligo Showgrounds. The only goal came two minutes before the half time break in what was for the most part an evenly contested encounter.
Mohan summoned an extended panel of 27 players, with several new additions, to the North West for these two contests with the Danes as he prepares for their 2020 European Championship qualifying Group 10 assignment in Austria next month where Gibraltar and Switzerland complete that qualifying group.
While disappointed with tonight’s result, Mohan will be happy with the opportunity to assess his player options in a quite competitive environment. He will give those players who missed out this evening an opportunity when the sides meet again in the Showgrounds at 1pm on Monday afternoon.
