Holden's Northern Ireland defeat Spain

Rory Holden got more international minutes under his belt as Northern Ireland U21s ran out 2-1 winners against Spain U21s.

Ian Baraclough's side got off to a flyer in their UEFA Euro Under-21 qualifier and opened the scoring through Shayne Lavery after just four minutes.

Their lead was extended in the eighth minute when Liam Donnelly tucked away a penalty.

Spain had plenty of efforts on goal but just a few tested the Northern Ireland keeper, who produced a fine diving save to keep out a Spanish spot-kick.

However, they scored to halve the deficit in second-half injury time through Rafa Mir.

It was a different story for Wales U21s though, as they were beaten 2-0 by ten-man Portugal U21s in their Euro Under-21 fixture.

Midfielder Joe Morell was substituted with Connor Lemonheigh-Evans making an appearance off the bench, while Yuri Ribeiro was sent off for the away side.

André Horta gave Portugal the half-time lead before they were reduced to ten men but Joäo Felix later doubled their advantage.
