International | Jack Taylor's brace secures 2-1 win for Under 21's over Republic of Ireland Seniors

30 May 2019

On his first taste of international football, Jack Taylor came off the bench to score twice for the Republic of Ireland Under 21's as they beat the Senior Men's side 2-1.

After a goalless first-half, Scott Hogan opened the scoring for the senior team before Bees midfielder Jack Taylor equalised from close range for the U-21s just a minute later.

With the match heading for a draw, Taylor scored his second goal of the game as his 25-yard deflected effort found its way past goalkeeper Sean McDermott in the final minute of the game.

When asked about Taylor's performance, manager Mick McCarthy stated:

"It was better than not bad! Stephen (Kenny) saw him at a cup game, obviously caught his eye, brought him in and he got the two goals that counted today - he played well in the game."

The Republic of Ireland Under 21's begin their Toulon Tournament campaign on Monday against China, 14:30 kick off GMT.
