Idah swoops to give Ireland win over Dutch
A goal from Norwich City striker Adam Idah on the hour gave Jim Crawford’s Ireland U18 side a 1-0 win over the Netherlands in their final game of their international tournament at the Pinatar Arena in Murcia.
Speaking after the win, Crawford said the trip to Spain, that also included a win against Belgium has been hugely productive for the side.
“The performances this week will cause Under-19 Head Coach Tom Mohan some headaches. A lot of the players performed to a very high standard. “Those performances will probably affect our side in March, as a lot of the players will be with the Under-19s for the Elite Round. I’m delighted for them. We want to be pushing on our best players.”
IRELAND: Sean Bohan; Ray O’sullivan, Tom Gaston, Kameron Ledwidge, Reece Staunton; Jason Knight (capt), Luca Connell (Brian Mcmanus 70); Callum Thompson (Tyriek Wright 46), Sean Brennan (Barry Coffey 46), Shane Flynn (Conor Grant 82); Adam Idah.
