Ireland U19: Parrott hat-trick maintains 100% record

Three second-half goals from striker Troy Parrott gave the Republic of Ireland Under-19s a 3-0 win over the Faroe Islands in the UEFA Under-19 Championship Qualifying Round in City Calling Stadium, Longford.

Despite having the majority of the chances, it took Ireland until the final 25 minutes of the game to break through a resolute Faroes' defence.

Bohemians striker Ali Reghba was fouled by Óli Poulsen in the 66th minute. Georgian referee Giorgi Kruashvili pointed to the spot, and Parrott stepped up to score his second penalty in two games.

Parrott doubled the lead 10 minutes later after Adam Idah's pass set up the Dubliner to score his second of the game.

Four minutes into added time, Parrott completed his hat-trick. Reghba was fouled once more, and Parrott made sure he collected the match ball in a rain-sodden Longford by slotting in another spot-kick.

Speaking after the game, Under-19 Head Coach Tom Mohan was delighted to have secured six points from the opening two games.

"It's a big result. It was important to win after the win earlier this week. It puts us in a good position to qualify," said Mohan.

"We had numerous chances in the first half, but with a mixture of good defending and poor finishing it stayed scoreless for over an hour. We kept probing and kept probing.

"When the chances came, Troy (Parrott) was clinical in his finishing. He's a talented player and so hard-working."

Ireland's qualification to the Elite Round will be confirmed if Bosnia & Herzegovina fail to defeat the Netherlands in Galway on Saturday evening.

Mohan's side will come up against Netherlands on Tuesday afternoon in Longford to finish off their Qualifying Round campaign.

Ireland won their opening match of the Qualifying Round on Wednesday with a 3-1 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina. Will Ferry, Troy Parrott and Adam Idah all scored second-half goals to get the three points.

The Faroe Islands lost their opening match 5-0 to the Netherlands in Galway, and Mohan expects the opposition to do all they can to ensure the same result doesn't happen again.

"They held the Dutch scoreless for over 40-minutes and I thought they were unlucky to lose by that scoreline," Mohan said.

"A lot of these players played in the Under-17 Finals two years ago, so I'm expecting a tough game on Saturday afternoon."

With Ireland winning their opening game, a win would be enough on Saturday to qualify for the Elite Round. Despite that, Mohan isn't taking anything for granted.

"Bosnia & Herzegovina, the Faroe Island and the Netherlands are three very different teams, with different strengths. We have to prepare excellently for all three game, and we know the team are in for a testing day."
