Match report
THE Republic of Ireland U21 team suffered an unfortunate 2-0 loss in their final fixture in the UEFA U21 Championships Qualifying Round away to Germany in Halle.

4th Sep 2014

Featuring an extremely young side - who will all be eligible for the next campaign - Noel King's side proved durable opponents for the group winners.

With Jack Grealish providing the main attacking thrust on the counter attack for Ireland, the visitors looked very solid at half-time as the sides went in scoreless.

Germany did have a goal incorrectly disallowed for offside in first half but Irish keeper Ian Lawlor was not unduly troubled by the Germans.

The home side took control of the game when Philipp Hofmann and Jonas Hofmann each scored early in the second half as the Germans claimed the three points to secure their play-off spot as group winners.

Philipp Hofmann opened the scoring two minutes into the second half when he headed home from a Julian Korb cross then substitute Jonas Hofmann found the net four minutes later after being set-up by Amin Younes.

The Irish will play Norway in a friendly in October before looking towards the next qualifying campaign in 2015.

GERMANY: Horn, Günter, Geis, Bittencourt, Leitner, Can, Korb, Knoche, P Hofmann (Arnold 65), Schulz J. Hofmann 46), Younes (Kachunga 74)

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND: Lawlor, Griffin, Connors, Wilkinson, Lenihan, Grealish, Watkins-Clark, Byrne (Sweeney 61), Hoban, Long, Sadlier (Garmston 65).
