Match report
At the Aviva Stadium, the Republic of Ireland won their first Nations League match with a decisive victory over Scotland.

11th Jun 2022

Alan Browne, Troy Parrott, and a stunning effort from Michael Obafemi helped Stephen Kenny's side to victory and their first three points of the campaign.

Stephen Kenny made five changes to the team as Michael Obafemi got his first start for Ireland with Troy Parrott also coming into the side and Jayson Molumby slotting into midfield.

In the opening exchanges, both teams had a share of possession, but the hosts had the first attempt at a goal. Michael Obafemi met a cross delivered into the Scottish area by James McClean, but his header was deflected behind for a corner by Scott McKenna.

Shane Duffy met the ball at the back post from the subsequent corner, and as his effort flashed across the face of the goal, it was met by Alan Browne, who was on hand to guide the ball past Craig Gordan from close range to give Ireland the lead.

For the visitors, John McGinn came close to levelling the game with a low strike from the edge of the area that just went wide of Kelleher's goal. In the next attack, a brilliant ball into the box by Obafemi, who initially spotted Troy Parrott's deep run, reached its intended target, and Parrott did excellently to head it past Gordon to double Ireland's lead.

Shane Duffy came close to scoring a third after a corner from Molumby was met by the defender, but Gordon made a fantastic stop. Ireland got off to the perfect start following the restart as Obafemi picked up the ball just outside the area and struck a fantastic effort that sailed into the top of the net, leaving Gordan with no chance of stopping it.

Ireland came close to adding a fourth goal when Scott Hogan's header appeared to cross the line, only for Hanley to clear it at the last second. Troy Parrott broke free of the Scottish back line moments later, but Gordon intercepted his cross to Hogan.

The Republic of Ireland will end this series of Nations League games by facing Ukraine on Tuesday evening in Poland in reverse of this week's fixture.
