Posted by nickogs20 on August 3, 2009

Brady bunch crash out

Posted by nickogs20 on May 8, 2008

United’s representation at the UEFA U17 European Championship finals will come to an end on Sunday as a second consecutive defeat for Robbie Brady’s Ireland side saw them eliminated from the competition. A 1-0 reverse against Switzerland means the Irish cannot now progress to the semi-finals, and they will go into Sunday’s final group game against Spain with only pride to play for.

Brady only played the final 20 minutes of the match against the Swiss – the muscle injury that forced him off in the Republic’s opener not having quite recovered enough for the winger to be able to start. Brady was introduced on the hour mark as Ireland boss Sean McCaffrey desperately tried to help his side find the goal that would cancel out the Gavin Gunning own goal that had given the Swiss the lead 10 minutes earlier and prolong Ireland’s participation in the tournament, but despite a couple of near-misses late on, it wasn’t to be.

Robbie’s injury had been symptomatic of an Ireland campaign severely hamstrung by injuries. “It’s a big setback but the players have learned a lot from this tournament, and we have learned as an association.” McCaffrey told uefa.com. “But three or four of these lads are good enough to go into the U19 squad next year – Gearoid Morrissey, Robbie Brady, Daniel Joyce. We want to try and beat Spain and go away with a good taste in our mouths”. Positive news for the United youngster after a disappointing week so far.
