Randolph’s a winner

darren-randolphDarren Randolph was in the  Republic of Ireland line up as they beat Uruguay in Dublin on Sunday.

Having lost out by a 3-1 margin to Mexico in the United States, Ireland triumphed by an identical margin on their return to the Aviva Stadium.

The West Ham United goalkeeper played 45 minutes – winning his 21st cap for Ireland – to round-off the preparations for next Sunday’s FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Austria in style.

Elsewhere Hammers youngster Dan Kemp was fouled for the penalty which gave England U20s the lead in their final Toulon Tournament group stage game against Japan.

Starting for the second time in the tournament, Kemp was brought down in the 25th minute, allowing George Hirst to fire the Young Lions in front.

Japan levelled in the second half, but England had the last word, sealing a 2-1 victory. England now progress to the semi-finals, looking to win this competition for the second year in succession.

  1. Randy made a mistake for the Uruguay equaliser, not his finest moment in an international shirt.
