The Republic of Ireland have secured their progression to the UEFA Under-17 European Championship qualifying Elite Round with a game to spare as they deservedly defeated a tough North Macedonia side 2-0 at Turner’s Cross on Sunday.
Rocca Vata opened the scoring with a tremendous shot from outside the box that hit the top corner of the North Macedonian goal.
Mark O’Mahony scored the second with a cheeky backheel despite his first touch initially taking the ball away from goal.
Next up for Ireland is a clash with Poland on Wednesday at 1pm in Turner’s Cross.
