Irish delight for Duffy

28 May 2016

Shane Duffy picked up his third cap for the Republic of Ireland in their 1-1 draw with Holland on Friday night.

The Rovers defender played the full match at the Aviva Stadium, boosting his chances of a place in the Irish squad for Euro 2016.

Shane Long's first half strike had put Martin O'Neill's side in front in Dublin, and they were just five minutes away from victory until Dutch substitute Luuk De Jong snatched an equaliser.

Ireland play their final warm-up match this Tuesday night against Belarus in Cork, after which O'Neill will select his 23-man squad for the finals in France.

In Belfast Corry Evans played 74 minutes as Northern Ireland warmed up for the Euros with a resounding 3-0 win over Belarus.

Evans started the match as goals from Kyle Lafferty, Conor Washington and Will Grigg made it a comfortable night at Windsor Park.

Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill is expected to name his squad for the finals later this Saturday, before the team travel to Trnava to face Slovakia in seven days time.

Lee Williamson earned himself another cap for Jamaica as they defeated Chile 2-1 on Friday evening.

The midfielder started the match in Vina Del Mar as goals from Clayton Donaldson and Joel Grant put the Reggae Boyz in front.

Nicholas Castillo halved the deficit for the Chileans in the 82nd minute but it proved to be mere consolation.

Jamaica will now travel to the US to take part in this summer's Copa America Centenario. Their opening game is against Venezuela in Chicago on June 5th.
