Smallbone continues scoring streak in Ireland win

By SFC Media time Mon 06 Jun International

Will Smallbone made it three goals in two games as he helped Republic of Ireland Under-21s to a 3-1 win over Montenegro in Dublin.

Making it two wins in four days in UEFA Euro U21 qualifying, the Saints midfielder opened the scoring just before the break with a stunning strike from the edge of the box.

Perfectly positioned 18 yards out, the 22-year-old chested the ball down before rifling in a left-footed effort, continuing his impressive scoring form.

Moving up to second in Group F, further strikes from Liam Kerrigan and Tyreik Wright put the hosts in a commanding position, with Zaim Divanovic offering a consolation for the visitors.

Jim Crawford’s side will now look to finish off a successful run of games with a trip to group leaders Italy next Tuesday.
