Payne goal guides WU17s to EURO Finals

The Republic of Ireland Women’s Under 17s qualified for this summer’s UEFA Women’s Under 17 European Championships following a 1-0 win over Hungary.Payne

The narrow victory saw Dave Bell’s side end their three Elite Round games unbeaten with seven points and top of Group 4 – having previously beaten hosts Serbia and drawn with Scotland.A single goal from Heather Payne on 13 minutes proved to be enough for Ireland to claim the win that they needed, but they were the more dominant of the two sides and that was a common trend throughout their qualifying campaign.Sometimes it takes a moment of magic to deliver a desired result and that is exactly what happened when Peamount United ace Payne used her wand of a foot to fire in a free-kick from distance. There was no looking back after that.Republic of Ireland: Turner; Grier, Ruddy, Doyle; Fahey (Spillane 53), McGovern, Toland, Mackey; Payne, McManus, McEvoy.Hungary: Terestyenyi; Csolti, Fordos, Kovacs, Nagy; Pulins, Vachter (Dorner 73), Tolnai (Kovacs 52); Pintye, Nagy (Pusztai 51), Czeller.Referee: Vera Opeykina (Russia).
