Ireland Scotland

There were mixed emotions for Albion midfielder Jayson Molumby on Saturday night.

The Baggies man was awarded the Player of the Match award for his display against Scotland at Hampden Park in the UEFA Nations League – a match which the Republic of Ireland lost 2-1.

Molumby completed 77 minutes in Glasgow before being replaced by Alan Browne, while Albion team-mate Dara O’Shea played the full game.

Stephen Kenny's men took the lead courtesy of John Egan in the first 45, but the Scots scored twice after the break to earn the three points, with their goals coming from Jack Hendry and Ryan Christie.

The defeat leaves Ireland third in their group, with one final fixture to come against Armenia on Tuesday night in Dublin (ko 7.45pm).

Elsewhere, young defender Ethan Ingram featured once again for England’s U20 side in the Costa Cálida Supercup tournament in Spain, this time against Morocco.

The Young Lions won the game 2-1 at the Pinatar Arena, with Ingram playing 71 minutes of the encounter before being swapped for Daniel Oyegoke.

Charlie Patino and Tim Iroegbunam scored for England and Abderahmane Soussi notched for Morocco.

The Albion youngster, who also played against Chile on Wednesday, will be hoping to win another cap on Tuesday when his nation come up against Australia (ko 4pm).
