Burnley's Irish stars combine to score two tasty goals against La Liga opposition

Jeff Hendrick provided Robbie Brady with the opener before his international team-mate repaid the favour in a 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo.

ROBBIE BRADY AND Jeff Hendrick know each other better than most team-mates.

The pair played on the same St Kevin’s Boys team as schoolboys and came up through Ireland underage system together to become stars of the senior team.

Now both are plying their trade at Burnley, along with fellow Irish internationals Jon Walters, Stephen Ward and Kevin Long.

Sean Dyche’s side faced Celta Vigo in a pre-season friendly at Turf Moor last night, and old pals Brady and Hendrick combined for both goals in a 2-2 draw.

The first is particularly pleasing on the eye. Plenty more of that please, lads.
