Coventry City defender Darragh Leahy helped the Republic of Ireland Under-17s to a 0-0 draw against the Netherlands in their first game of the UEFA U17 Championships Finals.

Leahy was a massive influence in helping the Irish keep a clean-sheet as he made a fantastic last-ditch block after 33 minutes to deny what looked a certain goal.

The point means Ireland are joint second in Group D with current Under-17s European Champions England and Italy the other two teams completing the group.

Leahy is expected to start the next game of the group stage against Italy which takes place on Sunday.
