Finn Harps duo Luke McGlynn and Conor Campbell featured for the Republic of Ireland Under-15s as they began their season with a well-deserved 1-0 victory away to Poland.
McGlynn played the full game while Campbell came on as a 55th minute substitute.
A Ben Quinn goal in the 25th minute proved to be enough for Jason Donohue’s side, as the team were given their first taste of international football. The winger found himself free at the back post, and cooly scored from a Sean Fitzpatrick cross.
“We were outstanding in the first half. We dominated position and remained composed throughout dominating position,” said Donohue.
“In the second half, Poland improved. They had some long-range shots, and not much more. The team were very resilient and I thought they were very calm under the Polish pressure.”
The teams meet once more on Thursday morning in the Polish town of Police.Tags:
