Our U21 side, under the guidance of Head Coach Jim Crawford, completed their 2021 European Championship qualifying campaign with a two one victory over hosts Luxembourg in Beggen this Wednesday afternoon.
Goals from Joshua Kayode(35 minutes) and substitute Jamie Lennon(65 minutes) secured the victory with the hosts scoring their goal on 84 minutes.
The campaign, which promised so much at the outset, is ending in disappointment following the home defeat by Iceland on Sunday last.
