Saints To The Fore In Rep. Of Ireland U19 Win

Saints duo Brian Maher and Luke Heeney were in action for the Republic of Ireland U19's as they defeated Romania 1-0 this afternoon in La Manga, Spain.

A goal from captain Dara O'Shea was enough for Ireland to defeat Romania as Tom Mohan's U19's continue their preparations for the Elite Round of the UEFA Under-19 European Championship next month, who also featured former Saint Aidan Keena in the side. This week's two friendlies against Romania count as the final preparations for the team ahead of the games against Portugal, Slovakia and Kosovo.

Speaking after the game, Republic of Ireland U19 Head Coach Tom Mohan was delighted with his side's performance, commenting, "It was a hard fought victory. We played some very good football. I thought the goalkeeper and the back four were very solid. The midfield worked extremely hard, as were the forwards. It was a very good team effort."

The two teams meet again on Thursday afternoon at 11am Irish time.

Republic of Ireland: Brian Maher; Luke Heeney, Dara O'Shea (captain), Lee O'Connor, Rian O'Sullivan; Daniel McKenna, Callum Nicell; Kian Flanagan, Matthew Shiels (Rowan Roache 67), Anthony Scully (Ciaran Dunne 80); Aidan Keena (Aaron Dobbs 73).
