Paul Osam's Republic of Ireland side made it two wins out of two with a 3-0 victory over Fiji in the UEFA Development Tournament in Israel.

A Fijian own goal early into the game was followed by an Andrew Moran strike before the interval. Kailin Barlow netted in the second half to seal the victory in Shefayim.

Finn Harps underage player Fionnan Coyle was in the starting 11 and played 71 minutes.

Speaking after the game, Ireland Under-16s Head Coach Paul Osam said: “We’re happy with the win, we’re happy that we’ve won two out of two but I think we all feel we could have won by more.

“We’ll turn our attention to Ukraine on Friday who are a good side and they play 3-4-3 so there’s an opportunity for us to attack the space they leave defensively. They have really good technical players so it makes for a new challenge for us to overcome.”
