Football Scores

Troy Parrott scored with virtually the last kick of the game to help the Republic of Ireland produce one of the narrow football scores of the midweek friendly action. The home side dominated the game which had a total of four goals ruled out for offside. Chiedoie Ogbene had two goals disallowed while   Conor Hourihane and Scott Hogan had their efforts chalked off as well. Just when the game looked like ending in a stalemate, Troy Parrott scored in the seventh minute of stoppage time to seal the win.

Managers Reaction 

Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny: “To be fair to the players, the ability to get late goals is a very, very important quality in a team. We got late goals against Azerbaijan, Serbia, three against Luxembourg, against Belgium, and again today. You can’t underestimate the value of persistence, it’s a very important quality in the team and it speaks about the humility of the group, which manifests itself in the ability to keep going.

“I’ve never been involved in a game with four goals disallowed. It’s a very unusual situation, four goals – and some of them are late flags, so you’re actually celebrating and then the flag goes up and you can’t believe it. The frustration can get the better of you and it didn’t. That was important. You’ve just had to keep passing, keep believing that you’ll create the openings. I know we left it very, very late, but it was a brilliant goal from Troy Parrott.”
