Coventry City Under-18s defender Darragh Leahy completed another 90 minutes as the Republic of Ireland Under-17s suffered defeat against Italy.

The Irish secured a point in their first game against the Netherlands but fell behind in the 14th minute as Simone Lo Faso's low shot found the net.

Ireland had plenty of chances but couldn't get the goal their play deserved as Italy extended their lead in the 56th minute through Simone Mazzocchi.

Leahy completed the entire game and with England's draw against the Netherlands, Ireland need to win against England on Wednesday to progress.

The game will be live on Eurosport UK at 5pm on Wednesday if you want to watch Darragh's progress with the Republic of Ireland national side.
