Tottenham forward Troy Parrott scored the winner at St George’s Park this afternoon.

Ireland 1

IRELAND RECORDED THEIR first win of this year’s Uefa U17 Championship at a sold-out St George’s Park today.

Having lost out 2-0 to Belgium in their Group C fixture on Saturday, Colin O’Brien’s side faced Denmark — who had gone down 3-2 to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

And just five minutes had been played when the Boys in Green found the back of the net through Troy Parrott.

The Tottenham youngster picked up the ball some 30 yards out from goal and drilled home what proved to be the winner.

With senior manager Martin O’Neill and his assistant Roy Keane in the stands, Adam Idah came close to doubling Ireland’s advantage in the second half, but the game ended 1-0.

Heading into their final group against Bosnia at the same venue on Friday, Ireland’s chances of making the knockout stages are still alive.

Republic of Ireland: Corcoran; Ledwidge, McEntee; Collins ©, Connell; Knight, Brennan (Coffey 41), O’Reilly (McEneff 66); Wright (Thompson 58), Idah, Parrott.
