Ireland's youngsters earn impressive win over Netherlands

Norwich youngster Adam Idah scored the only goal for the Boys in Green.

IRELAND U18S EARNED an impressive 1-0 win over the Netherlands at an Invitational Tournament in Spain today.

Norwich youngster Adam Idah scored the only goal for the Boys in Green with a clinical second-half finish at the Pinatar Arena.

Jim Crawford’s side had mixed fortunes before today, winning their opener 2-1 against Belgium, before losing their second match 3-1 against England.

“The performances this week will cause U19 Head Coach Tom Mohan some headaches. A lot of the players performed to a very high standard,” Crawford said afterwards.

“Those performances will probably affect our side in March, as a lot of the players will be with the U19s for the Elite Round. I’m delighted for them. We want to be pushing on our best players.”
