Duffy unused sub as Ireland draw

14 June 2016

Shane Duffy was an unused substitute as the Republic of Ireland kicked off their Euro 2016 schedule with a 1-1 draw with Sweden in Saint-Denis.

Like Corry Evans the previous day, the Rovers defender saw no involvement as the match ended all square at the Stade de France.

Wes Hoolahan's impressive strike three minutes into the second half gave Ireland the lead, but an own goal from Ciaran Clark on 71 minutes saw the Swedes claim a point.

Martin O'Neill's side are back in action this Saturday when they play Belgium. They lost their opener 2-0 against Italy on Monday night.

• Meanwhile in the US, Jamaica ended their Copa America campaign with a 3-0 loss to Uruguay.

Lee Williamson played 69 minutes of the match at the Levi's Stadium.
