ROI MU17’s draw with Bulgaria in Portugal

The Republic of Ireland Men’s Under-17s hopes of reaching the UEFA European Under-17 Championships in Israel are officially over as they failed to progress from the Elite Phase following their 2-2 draw with Bulgaria at the Municipal, Santa Comba Dao in Portugal on Tuesday.

Following defeats to Portugal and Finland in their opening two games in Group 8, Ireland knew that they needed a comprehensive win here and results elsewhere to go their way if they were to qualify for the tournament next month.

But goals from substitute Rocco Vata and Sam Curtis were only enough to earn them a point as they had trailed by two goals at half-time thanks to a brace from Bulgaria’s Roberto Iliev Raychev.

The Irish team dominated for large spells of the first half but they paid the price for a lapse in concentration in the 13th minute when Raychev raced onto a loose back pass before the attacker expertly slotted the ball into the bottom left corner.

And things got even worse for the Boys in Green shortly before the break when Raychev notched his and his side’s second of the game when his perfectly timed run from the right allowed him to hammer home a cross pulled back from the left.

Head Coach Colin O’Brien made a couple of alterations to his side during the interval and it paid dividends just past the hour mark when the recently introduced Rocco Vata powered his header past goalkeeper Aleks Anastasov Bozhev from close-range.

Ireland continued to pile players forward in their numbers and they deservedly grabbed an equaliser in the 75th minute when Sam Curtis drilled his shot past the keeper at his back post.

Ireland battled until the very end as they went in search of a winner but ultimately it just wasn’t to be their day or their tournament.

ROI WU17 succumb to home loss to Iceland

The dream of reaching the UEFA Women's Under-17 European Championships ended for the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday afternoon.
