Sophie and Ethan represent country

Sophie Lenehan of Ballindaggin United was between the posts for the Republic of Ireland Under-17 women's team who beat Andorra 7-0 in their second European Championship qualifier in Turkey on Saturday.

She had been an unused substitute in the 3-0 victory over Ukraine two days earlier and, as a result, they will be aiming for top spot in Group 1 when they take on the hosts today (Tuesday).

Meanwhile, Ethan Boyle from Wexford town was also an unused substitute when the Republic of Ireland Under-19 side went down to Ukraine on a 2-1 scoreline in a friendly in the Markets Field in Limerick on Monday.

Boyle - who captained Waterford United during this season's SSE Airtricity First Division campaign - had started against the same opponents at the same venue two days earlier when the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Paul Doolin's side were building up preparations for the UEFA Under-19 Championships qualifying tournament next month which will see the Irish meet Slovenia, Latvia and Scotland in Limerick and Galway.
