The Red Devils, without the Ancients, give up the lead twice against Ireland

The Red Devils failed to beat Ireland on Saturday. On a visit to the Irish, the Red Devils twice took the lead, but each time he was turned over. It became 2-2.

As you know, there are no seniors in the Red Devils, which gave some of the younger players the opportunity to prove themselves. Under ‘Captain Tielemans’ the game initially went up and down, but the Red Devils had a hard time keeping the ball in the team.

The Irish put a lot of pressure on her and didn’t give the Red Devils any space to play football. In the match that marked Ireland’s centenary, it was clear that the hosts wanted a good result together.

Michy Batshuayi didn’t touch with difficulty, but just a few meters of space was enough to score. After a ball from Vanaken, Batshuayi outperformed direct opponent Coleman and perfectly placed the ball in the corner.

The game was then dedicated to the Red Devils. The Irish did not reach Simon Mignolet, who had a particularly quiet evening. Until the 35th minute. Out of nowhere the Irish were there and after some bargaining the ball reached Ogbene. The man from the First Division (English third tier) managed to beat Mignolet with a kick. So I stayed until the break.

The Irish entered the changing rooms feeling good and they confirmed that good feeling in the second half. They almost went ahead after just a few minutes, but Jason Denayer managed to tip the ball off the line.

The owners of the land deserved more, but they did not score the goal. On the other hand, the Red Devils do. Hans Vanaken headed a corner kick on goal. The ball hit Coleman and entered the goal. 1-2 to the Red Devils and return everything to the Irish.

The lead may have been for the Red Devils, but the win was far from inside. The home team continued to play focused football and hoped for a good result. I pushed the Red Devils back and also managed to decorate a few (small) chances. However, it seemed like we were headed towards a win for the Red Devils, but that eventually changed. After a good performance by Ogbini, the ball came to be replaced by Brown, who headed the ball past goalkeeper Mignolet. 2-2.
