Finn Harps’ Patrick McGarvey kept a clean sheet this afternoon as the Republic of Ireland U15s defeated Cyprus.
Late goals by Louie Barry and Calum Kavanagh saw Ireland win 2-0 at the Aul Complex.
It took until the 78th-minute for Ireland to take the lead with Barry scoring the decisive goal.
Four minutes later, Kavanagh scored in the second minute of added time to cap off an impressive week for the side after a 2-0 win on Tuesday.
Finn Harps man McGarvey was between the sticks for this afternoon’s clash.
“We deserved to win. We played 4-4-2, to try two strikers together for the first time,” Jason Donogue said.
“The scoreline didn’t flatter us.
“The players were so professional this week. In the last 15 minutes we looked very strong. That’s a credit to the players and backroom staff.
“Cyprus were a lot bigger and stronger than us, but our team were fitter in the latter stages which was crucial”.Tags:
