SOCCER

The Republic of Ireland played out a 1-1 draw with Ukraine in the Nations League last night.

Leixlip's Nathan Collins' - who was named player of the match - his superb individual goal gave Stephen Kenny's side the lead in the first-half.

Ukraine equalised shortly after the break.

Kenny says he was pleased with his side's efforts, particularly at the back:



The result leaves Ireland third in the Group 1 table on four points.

In last night's other game, Scotland beat Armenia 4-1 in Yerevan.

England suffered their heaviest home defeat since 1928 last night.

They were hammered 4-0 by Hungary at Molineux, and also had John Stones sent off.

England sit bottom of their League A group and in real danger of relegation.


There was plenty of injury-time drama in Rotterdam where a Gareth Bale penalty looked to have salvaged a point for Wales.

But Memphis Depay found a late goal for the Netherlands who ran out 3-2 winners.
