    England beat Italy 1-0. Scrappy enough goal, shot came back off the upright, rebound was passed/scuffed to a striker who had a fairly easy finish.
    Leaves the group pretty open, with England the favourites to get through now.

    You'd think Netherlands have England's number given their last meeting, so I'd say it's all there to play for.

    calamity of errors in defence for Ireland though, easily could have put the ball out for a corner at least three times, before the ball fell to the Italian striker

    Ireland playing good football though

    2-0 now, again a defensive mistake leading to the goal, the right full tried an air shot to clear the ball, which instead fell to an Italian player. He passed it to the striker, who fired into the net.
    The Ireland side really do deserve something from this though

    Couple of very good performances out there, that young Masterson fella looks pure quality.

    Too many very poor passes have let Ireland down. Same story as Netherlands though by the look of it, not taking chances when they come.

    They've lacked what all out underage sides have missed since Robbie I suppose, someone who'll put the ball in the net. They've had the majority of possession and Ronan looks a good player. Better to watch than the senior side, in the first 2 thirds of the pitch.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how accomplished they look, as individuals, as a team and as units of a team, but all a bit futile without a genuine threat in the box. The one big chance fell to Barrett(?). From behind the goal it looked like if he had left it the cross would have gone straight in as the keeper dived left too early in anticipation of Barrett's touch.

    Excited for this evenings game in fairness great chance to qualify. Brits certainly physically bigger. Been very pressed with tabi and levingston in centre mid really good passers. Masterson looks pure class. The two British fullbacks have looked very impressive if we can nullify them think we will be in with great chance. Watched the Italy game again last night we really did play excellent football and looked technically superior to italy

    Scotland looking like going out without a point and without a goal from their group C.

    It'd be great to at very least go out and get a good result from England, the reigning champions. With a large group of home-based players, they can be very proud of their achievements to even get this far. I know it's jumping the gun, and a large portion of these players won't make it at the highest level in reality, but it bodes well for the future of Irish football to have our young teams getting to the finals and performing well in these tournaments.

    It would be fantastic though to beat England 2-0 and sneak through, giving them a good chance of getting to the World Cup later this year.

    England play some decent football. How un-English of them.
