Republic of Ireland Under-17s 2-0 Bosnia and Herzegovina
Troy Parrott was on target once again as the Republic of Ireland sealed a place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA European Under-17 Championships.
A draw would have been enough for Ireland, and the game looked to be heading that way, but Parrott’s curling effort in the 69th minute put Colin O'Brien's side on the way to another win. The striker also scored against Denmark on Tuesday.
Adam Idah sealed it with a second goal four minutes into added-time.
Ireland will play Netherlands on Monday in the quarter-finals.
