Heavy defeat leaves U21s in scrap with Norway to qualify for European Championships

The Republic of Ireland Under-21s' hopes of making next year's European Championships took a massive blow this evening.

Noel King's side conceded three penalties in a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Group 5 leaders Germany at Tallaght Stadium.

The result leaves Ireland in a scrap with Norway for a potential play-off spot.

They face back-to-back away games with Israel and Germany next month.
