Byrne extends U-19s unbeaten run

Published 08/02/2013 | 04:00

IRELAND'S U-19s extended their unbeaten run to six matches after coming from behind to draw at Flancare Park in Longford.

Irish boss Paul Doolin made 10 changes to his side which beat the Czechs 2-1 in Tuesday's first game between the sides and they fell behind on 23 minutes.

Referee Brendan Kelly awarded a spot-kick for a foul by captain Pearse Sweeney on Petr Sevcik, allowing striker Vaclav Juecka to send 'keeper Danny Rogers the wrong way.

Manchester United's lively Sam Byrne came agonisingly close to equalising on the half hour with his poked effort going a yard wide.

Ireland were level within a minute of the restart. Left-winger Adam Evans crossed to the near post and found Byrne, who guided his header past Jan Kotnour.

Sweeney's header two minutes later rebounded off the crossbar. Brandon Miele's forceful right foot was the source of Ireland's best chances of nicking a winner – only the crossbar denied the Newcastle midfielder's 25-yard shot 10 minutes from the end.

Up next is a training camp in Malaga at the end of March.
