MU17 | REPORT | Danes prove too much for Ireland

St. Patrick’s Athletic’s Michael Noonan netted his 13th international goal of the season in a defeat for Ireland Men’s Under-17s against Denmark in Pinatar, Spain today.

In the second of two friendlies for Colin O’Brien’s side this week, the Danes were ruthless winning the game 5-1 having been 3-0 up inside 20 minutes.
 
In the 40th minute Finn Harp’s Oisin Cooney saved a penalty only to see the rebound converted to as Denmark went 4-0 up by half-time.
 
But Ireland were much better in the second half causing Denmark problems. Niall McAndrew took things into his own hands driving at goal and firing an effort that just went over.
 
In 59th minute Noonan profited from pressure from Ireland in the Danish penalty area and the St. Pat’s teen netted his sixth goal in four international games.
 
Denmark made it 5-1 against the run of play when Arsenal’s Chidozie Obie slotted home after a counter attack.
 
William Martin thought he netted a second for Ireland late on but the Odense BK forward, playing against one of his club mates, saw his effort ruled out.
 
O’Brien’s team are back in action next month when they’re in UEFA U17 EURO Elite Round action against Portugal, Germany and Croatia.
 
Denmark: Gronkjaer, Markmann (C), Lykke, Moalem, Risnaes, Søndergaard, Lodberg, Heyde, Düring, Johannesen, Tornvig. Substitutions: Breum-Harild, Stüker, Lassen, Højer, Obi, Abildgaard
