Republic of Ireland 5 Estonia 0
THE Republic of Ireland U16 side completed the double over visitors Estonia with a 5-0 win on a sun drenched evening at Celtic Park in Killarney on Thursday evening.
Played before a big crowd, and in the presence of FAI CEO John Delaney, Estonia looked a much slicker side that they were in Listowel when they lost 6-0 on Tuesday.
Indeed they matched Tom O'Connor's Irish side for the opening quarter but the Boys in Green were creating the better chances.
And in the 24th minute they took one of these when Daniel Mandareu got the first of his two on the night.
Jamie Ahern made it 2-0 in the 32nd minute giving the Estonians a mountain to climb.
They needed to score first in the second half but once Mandareu made it 3-0 in the 50th minute it was game over.
Conor Davis got in on the scoring act in the 60th minute with a screamer from distance to make it 4-0 and Mark Buckley wrapped it all up in the 74th minute to send the fans home happy.
St Brendan's Park Tralee's Jesse Srafford Lacey captained the side for the second time in three days in his home county.
Earlier John Delaney officially opened Killarney Celtic's stand now named in honour of the late John 'Doyler' Doyle.
