Ireland U17 were extremely impressive in their 2-0 loss to Italy U17 earlier today in the UEFA U17 Championship in Bulgaria.

The Irish team displayed some very good quick possession football. They passed the ball around with authority, but couldn't finish any of the chances that they created whilst the Italians took advantage of the two opportunities they have.

It leaves Ireland at a perilous position in trying to qualify from the group having already drawn with Holland with England to come.

There were some great performances from the Irish players, with Corey O'Keefe, Conor Masterson, Anthony Scully, Trevor Clarke, and Conor Levingston impressing, but there was one player who was the heartbeat of all that was good with the team:
