Match report
The Republic of Ireland Under-17 Women's team were crowned winners of a tri-nation tournament played in Manchester at the weekend as warm-up for next month's World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.

Following their 1-0 win over hosts England on Wednesday secured by a Jenny Byrne winner, the Irish clinched the title by drawing 1-1 against Denmark thanks to Siobhan Killeen's excellent long-range shot that found the net.

Manager Noel King said: "The girls produced two fantastic performances. Both England and Denmark had Under-19 players on the pitch but our team were up to the task and deservedly finished as winners."

On Tuesday, King will announce his squad for the upcoming FIFA Women's U17 World Cup which will take place in Trinidad and Tobago from September 5-25.

Ireland kick-off the sixteen nation FIFA World Cup against Brazil on Monday September 6 which is followed by a clash with Canada on September 9 with both games taking place at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Trinidad. The ‘Girls in Green' complete the group phase against Ghana on September 13 at the Dwight Yorke Stadium in Tobago.
