Match report
Ireland got their Under 17 European Championship campaign right back on track this afternoon with a crucial win over Denmark at St George’s Park thanks to an early goal from Troy Parrott.

Ireland came flying out of the blocks and went ahead in just the fourth minute. Sean Brennan expertly switched the play to find Adam O’Reilly in space. O’Reilly found Troy Parrott out wide, the Tottenham Hotspur forward then cut inside and drove a right footed strike past Daniel Andersen in the Danish goal.

The second half started lively once again with two clear cut chances for Ireland. First Adam Idah and then Troy Parrott both went close to extending the lead but both efforts went narrowly over the crossbar.

Ultimately it was the early goal that was decisive as Ireland head into a final group game on Friday against Bosnia & Herzegovina with it all to play for.
