Kerr's U-16s freeze out
English in Iceland saga

THE Brian Kerr bandwagon rolled merrily on in Iceland on Saturday when his U-16 side won the inaugural U-16 Nordic Cup when beating England 3-2 to make the number of underage title wins in 1998 for Kerr to four.

The trophy cabinet at 80 Merrion Square is overflowing with four major trophies on display after this latest addition to the U-18 Oporto Tournament, the U-16 European Championship and the U-18 Euro final.

"I think that the FAI will have to build another Trophy Room if we keep going like this. The only thing we ever won in our history before was a three-team tournament under Jack Charlton when we beat Iceland and Czechoslovakia.
"That was only a tiny trophy that you could have folded up and put in a drawer. The cup we won here is a massive yoke. All the lads are
delighted to have won, especially as they beat England," said Kerr.
"It was great to win, but it was tough going because the English were a good passing team. We should have won by more but we did make a couple of mistakes," Kerr added.

The decisive strike came after 62 minutes when Sunderland's Clifford Byrne knocked home Colin Larkin's corner to shatter the confidence of the England team and ensure victory for the Irish squad.

Ireland took the lead in the game after 10 minutes through Ardmore Rovers' Robert Doyle but were hauled back by England's Leon Knight with just three minutes to go before the interval.
Ireland bounced back however and restored their lead just 60 seconds later when Andy Reid cheekily chipped the goalkeeper from 50 yards.
Knight brought England back on level terms again however after 53 minutes but, once again, Kerr's side had an answer and they produced this in the form of Byrne's winner 17 minutes from the final whistle.

IRELAND: Harpur (Chelsea), Van Zanten (Tolka Rovers), Byrne (Sunderland), Coleman (Wolves), Murray (Blackburn Rovers), Larkin (Muirhevnamor), Lester (Everton), Reid (Notts Forest), Doyle (Ardmore Rovers), Creamer (Leeds United), Cawley (Leeds United).
