Match report
Tom Mohan's side now know that a victory over Poland in their final group game is likely to seal their place in the finals tournament in Azerbaijan this May.

A goal in first half injury-time from Jayson Molumby put the Irish in control then two late finishes from Stephen Mallon and Thomas Byrne sealed a vital three points.

"We played very well. We were the dominant side and played a good brand of football," said Mohan.

"They were a big, physical, outfit and we had to deal with a lot of long balls that they played and I was pleased with how we defended. We did well in attacking areas and probably could have scored some more goals.

"It is not just the result that pleased me. The performance was very pleasing. It was good to play on a decent pitch that suited our style of play and the boys showed great courage and skill. We were patient and were dominant in possession."

Declan Rice returned from illness and Thomas O'Connor recovering from injury but one blow for the Irish is that Thomas Byrne picked up a second booking so unfortunately will miss the Poland game on Saturday.

Ireland took the lead in the 43rd minute when Molumby turned the ball home with a Jamie Vardy-style flick after his initial effort following a break hit the crossbar but Glen McAuley reacted first to square the ball to Molumby.

Mallon added the second in the 71st minute after knocking the ball home from six yards after connecting with a low pass across goal from Lee O'Connor.

Byrne made it 3-0 in the 79th minute after a long sequence of Irish passes that led to great combination play where Byrne fed O'Connor and he supplied Anthony Scully, who played Byrne in to fire in from 15 yards out.
