Two days after a 1-0 defeat to the same opposition in Tramore, Under-17 Head Coach Colin Bell made one change to the team, with defender Sophie Liston replacing Orla Prendergast.

Czech Republic took the lead just before half-time with midfielder Barbora Polcarova finding the back of the net. They ensured victory with a late goal as Karetina Marcinkova scored from close range.

The side's focus now turns to the upcoming UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship Qualifying Round games next month against Serbia, Albania and Wales.

Republic of Ireland: Courtney Maguire, Zara Foley, Sophie Liston, Mia Dodd, Della Doherty, Kayla Brady, Rebecca Cooke, Shauna Carroll, Jessica Ziu, Kabha O'Mahony (capt), Emily Whelan.
