It was such a drubbing in the Sports Center in Serbia that the FAI's twitter account tweeted score updates in gluts of two or three goals, as the Ireland U17 women's team annihilated Albania 14-0 in what has to be one of the most lopsided results in recent sporting memory.
Emily Kraft marked her first team appearance with four goals, with Emily Whelan grabbing a hat trick. Eabha O'Mahoney, Jessica Ziu and Katelyn Keogh all scored braces with Mia Dodd the only woman on the scoresheet with just the one goal.

It was truly a mismatch in Ireland's opening match of the UEFA Women's U17 Championship, with the Albanians not so much as registering a shot against Colin Bell's team.
Ireland currently sit top of Group 7 after one game, with a remarkably healthy goal difference, and will be back in action this Thursday against Wales and again on Sunday against Serbia.
