Warren winner for Irish boys
Republic of Ireland 2
The Republic of Ireland U-16 team remain on course for the European finals later this year after coming from behind to defeat Belgium in the Three Nations Mini Tournament in Dungannon last night.
Northern Ireland beat Belgium 1-0 earlier this week, so the qualification place for the European finals in Scotland will be decided when Northern Ireland play the Republic of Ireland in their game at Moranview Park, Lurgan tomorrow night.
Even though the Irish were having the better of the exchanges, Belgium took the lead after 20 minutes with a break away goal scored by Chatelle.
The Irish then took control and were deservedly rewarded in the second-half.
The match was won with two goals in a four-minute spell.
The Irish got back on terms after 62 minutes with a goal from Newcastle United's David McMahon. Three minutes later McMahon had to go off injured and was replaced by David Warren of Mayfield, Cork, who was not named in the original panel by manager Brian Kerr.
The Cork youngster was only in the game one minute when he scored the winner.
