90' + 3'

Free Kick

France U19 have won a free kick. Stefan Bajic will take it.

90' + 2'

A long ball from Andy Lyons is pumped forward but Bajic claims easily... Seconds remain...

90'

Afolabi gets in a tussle with Bajic but the referee adjudges the striker to have fouled. There wll be four minutes of added time, still time but it's not looking likely although...

88'

That may very well have been the chance... Kameron Ledwidge gets free on the ;eft but Bajc tips the ball clear with Reghba scampering after the ball. Reghba can't get on the ball comfortably and France clear...

86'

Free Kick

Republic of Ireland U19 have won a free kick. Joe Hodge will take it.

83'

GOAL!

Wilson Isidor scores for France U19.

I said it would be a long last ten minutes and Ireland have succumbed to the pressure. Pierre Kalulu cuts inside to get past Tyriek Wilson and there in Isidor at the back post to head home past Brian Maher in goal... That is devastating for Ireland but there is still time for an equaliser...

81'

Ireland are running out of steam now it appears. France are very close to scoring but they can't hit the back of the net. This will be a LONG last ten minutes for Tom Mohan's side

78'

Substitution

Wilson Isidor replaces Bridge Ndilu for France U19.

78'

Substitution

Nathan Ngoumou replaces Charles Abi for France U19.

76'

Substitution

Tyriek Wright replaces Matt Everitt for Republic of Ireland U19.

75'

LEE O'CONNOR CLEARS OFF THE LINE! 

Ireland are just holding on now as Begraoui's header looks set for the back of the net but O'Connor clears Andy Lyons-esque. That was a very close call there for the Boys in Green

74'

Corner Kick

France U19 have won a corner kick. Alexis Flips will take it.

73'

There is jsut over 15 to go in Armenia. Could Ireland hold out? The improbable is now looking very possible...

68'

Substitution

Claudio Gomes replaces Julien Ponceau for France U19.

68'

Substitution

Yanis Begraoui replaces Maxence Caqueret for France U19.

64'

Substitution

Barry Coffey replaces Brandon Kavanagh for Republic of Ireland U19.

64'

JONATHAN AFOLABIIIII.... 

That's two great chances for Afolabi in the space of two minutes. Firstly he almost scores from the halfway line before he gets fed in by Barry Coffey. 

Coffey finds Afolabi who forces a grat save from Bajic in the end. So, so close for the Boys in Green! 

62'

Corner Kick

Republic of Ireland U19 have won a corner kick. Brandon Kavanagh will take it.

Ohhhhh.... Brandon Kavanagh's initial delivery is cleared back to the Hoops youngster and Kavanagh sends it back into danger but nobody can get on th end of the ball. So close!

59'

Maher forced into action again as Ndilu shoots on goal but Maher is equal to the effort. Ireland are dropping ever so slightly deeper now...

55'

GREAT DEFENDING FROM IRELAND! 

Lyons, O'Connor, McEntee and McGuinness all come up with superb last ditch blocks to keep the danger out. Ireland needed all hands to the pump there and they had it in spades, great desire it must be said..

53'

Ali Reghba with some good centre-forward play, winning a free-kick and easing the pressure on his teammates in the process. This is much better from the Boys in Green

51'

Corner Kick

France U19 have won a corner kick. Mathis Picouleau will take it.

49'

There will be a brief stoppage in play as Mathis Picoleau is being atttended to. He should be OK to continue

46'

Second Half

The second half between Republic of Ireland U19 and France U19 has started.

45' + 2'

Half Time

It is half-time between Republic of Ireland U19 and France U19.

AND BREATHE... Ireland somhow go into the break level. If it wasn;t for Brian Maher this may be ugly enough but the St Pat's keeper has been very good thus far. Ireland need to get on the ball a lot more in the second half in order to stay in this one, they've been chasing shadows for too long in Armenia

45' + 2'

MAHER WITH A BRILLINAT SAVE AGAIN! 

Ndilu once again forces a great save from Maher who looked to have no chance saving the effort on goal. It came through a raft of bodies before Maher tipped it wide

45' + 1'

Julien Ponceau shoots just over the bar but France win the corner as the ball deflected slightly off Lee O'Connor

45'

There will be two minutes of added time

41'

BRILLIANT SAVE FROM BRIAN MAHER! 

Bridge Ndilu forces a great save from Maher who had to do his best to keep the rasping effort out. From the resulting corner, the ball breaks to Oumar Olet but Ndilu blocks it inadvertedly...

41'

Mathis Picoleau has been running the show in Armenia this evening. He really looks a class act at his young age 

38'

Free Kick

France U19 have won a free kick. Mathis Picouleau will take it.

Bridge Ndilu almost gets hsi head on the delivery from wide but thankfully for Maher and Ireland, nothing comes of it...

37'

Pierre Kalulu has sent in some pretty poor crosses from the right over the past few minutes. This is letting Ireland get back into their shape a tad more

34'

Free Kick

Republic of Ireland U19 have won a free kick. Brandon Kavanagh will take it.

33'

Ireland with a brief spell with the ball after a relentless spell from France. Tom Mohan will be delighted if it remains scoreless at the break I would imagine 

30'

Corner Kick

Republic of Ireland U19 have won a corner kick. Brandon Kavanagh will take it.

28'

Ireland with a good spell of possession there with Joe Hodge finding Jonathan Afolabi free at the edge of the area but France clear easily in the end. That was much better there from Ireland

27'

Free Kick

Republic of Ireland U19 have won a free kick. Kameron Ledwidge will take it.

26'

We are back underway in Yerevan. France, as they were, are back in possession plaaing keep ball as such 

24'

There will be a brief water break due to the searing temperatures. Not sure how long this will last but this will be welcomed by the Boys in Green

22'

Andy Lyons launches a ball forward towards Brandon Kavanagh but the Shamrock Rovers youngster can't get near the ball. Ireland have yet to really get their foot on the ball just yet

18'

A brief venture forward from Ireland there as Reghba and Lyons link up but Stefan Bajic cleans up the danger. Promising opening for the Boys in Green..

17'

France are continuing to probe and press here with Ireland unable to get out of heir defensive shell. Tom Mohan's side are just clearing at any possible opportunity

15'

Apologie for the brief stoppage in updates there. France have been well on top during the first quarter of the game with keeper Brian Maher been the far busier of the two goalkeepers. This is looking somewhat ominous...
