ERIN Fildara featured as the Republic of Ireland Women’s Under-19s defeated Northern Ireland yesterday.
Goals by Laura Shine and Jenna Slattery gave Dave Connell’s side a 2-0 win at the Queen’s University Sports Grounds in Belfast.
Fildara made her return from a recent injury as a second-half substitute.
Sion Swifts attacker Fildara, who didn’t play in Wednesday’s 3-0 win in Dublin, replaced Shine on 61 minutes.
“It’s been a very productive camp with the two wins the icing on the cake,” said Connell.
“It was great to score five goals over the two matches with Northern Ireland and to keep two clean sheets as well.
“We made 10 changes today so the performance and the result just proves the strength in depth in this group and there are a few more players to come into contention as well.
“It is going to be difficult to narrow the group down to the squad for the European Championship qualifiers in October but it is really pleasing to have that problem.”
