Match report
he Republic of IrelAnd obtained a creditable 1-1 draw against a strong French side in France today.

France led at half-time through Katuta’s 31st minute goal but the resilient Irish side made their second half pressure pay off through a strike from substitute Gearoid Morrissey.

The Ringmahon Rangers player had just entered the fray when, with his first touch of the ball, he struck a shot from the edge of the area that took a deflection off a French defender and hit the back of the net.

It was no more that Ireland deserved on the night as they created a number of chances to score through Aaron Doran, Darragh Satelle and Ronan Murray.

The hosts dominated the first half but Ireland regrouped after the break and were well worthy of a draw.

The Republic of Ireland remain unbeaten in their three matches so far this season, following their two drawn games against Croatia played away earlier this month.

The two teams meet again on Thursday in Saint Brieuc (Kick-off 18.30 hrs local time).
