10 October 2016

Darragh Lenihan, Tommie Hoban and Jack Byrne all played for the Republic of Ireland Under-21s on Friday night.

The Rovers trio all started in Waterford, as they ended their UEFA Under-21 qualifying campaign with a 3-1 loss to Serbia.

Hoban captained the Irish who took the lead early in the second half through Courtney Duffus, but the visitors hit back with three goals to secure their play-off place.

On Saturday night none of Rovers' players were involved in their respective World Cup qualifiers.

Gordon Greer's Scotland only managed a 1-1 draw against Lithuania, whilst Norway's disappointing start continued with a 1-0 away loss to Azerbaijan. Martin Samuelsen was an unused substitute.

Corry Evans' Northern Ireland were winners, but the Rovers midfielder played no part as they four goals past San Marino in Belfast.

All three will be hoping for game time this Tuesday night when the next round of internationals are played. Scotland are away to Slovakia, Norway face San Marino and Northern Ireland travel to take on Germany.
