just saw on eurosport2 there Ireland U17 girls team beat Canada 1-0 in the U-17s world cup in Trinidad tonight.
the goal was a fantastic strike from a girl from Raheney whose name escapes me.
Noel King is the manager and was sent off for calling the linewoman a “f-ing disgrace” with a few mins to go.
he then went into the stand and took on all comers
Fair play to Noel and the lassies.
they are playing Ghana or Brazil next that is currently live on eurosport 2 now.
3 of the girls are listed with Reading and one from Montclair which i believe is in NJ ( id need Flano to confirm) but the rest all seem irish,
the girl from Raheney who got the goal had a smashing game…
In fairness though, all joking aside, they have a good set up and could do well over there.
I had a quick look at their UEFA Championships results there and they clocked up some good wins. 4-0 and 1-0 wins against England for starters. :mellow:
Finish looked good on first viewing but after seeing it again it was terrible goalkeeping . The shot was nearly straight down the middle only about 6ft off the ground and there was no pace on the shot.
I shouldn’t know this but they lost 2-1 to Brazil at the weekend so I presume a result against Ghana is required to progress. We’re all very proud of Rianna Jarrett in Wexford, despite her links with Clonard GAA club.
