International review: Hoolahan plays 45 in Ireland win

4 June 2017

NORWICH City midfielder Wes Hoolahan played the second half of Ireland's highly impressive 3-1 friendly win over Uruguay in Dublin on Sunday evening.

The game was level at the break, with Jon Walters' thunderous strike cancelled out by Jose Gimenez's effort.

However, Martin O'Neill's side restored their lead early in the second half following Hoolahan's introduction when Cyrus Christie found the net.

A third was added 13 minutes from time when James McClean broke down the left before firing home, effectively seeing off the visitors' challenge.

Ireland are next in action on Sunday, June 11 for their crunch World Cup Qualifier against Austria.
