The Republic of Ireland Women’s Under 19’s marched into the semi-finals of the UEFA European Championships last night after beating Sweden 2-1 in Norway.

Republic of Ireland 2, Sweden 1

Known as ‘The History Girls’, they roared back at the UKI Arena, Jessheim after Savannah McCarthy and Megan Connolly both scored to see them top Group B after previously beating Spain and England.

Sweden took an eighth-minute lead through Julia Wahlberg, but a header from McCarthy and a superb free-kick from Connolly swung the game for Dave Connell's side to wrap up a third straight win.

Ireland will be back in action on Thursday night, where a place in the final is only one more win away. There is just no stopping these History Girls.

Republic of Ireland: Dunne; Keenan, O’Connell, McCarthy, Wright; Connolly, Mustaki, Dwyer; Rowe (Shine 58), O’Connor, McCabe (Carson 88).

Sweden: Musovic; Ekholm, Bjorn, E Karlsson, N Karlsson; Andersson (Angeldal 76), Hurtig, Wahlberg, Curmark (Okvist h-t); Blackstenius, Olme (Jansson 70).
