International Watch: Holden's Ireland play out stalemate

Rory Holden was an unused substitute for Northern Ireland’s Under-21s in their latest UEFA Championship qualifier.

Ian Baraclough’s squad faced a dogged Iceland side on Monday evening in Coleraine and despite a handful of opportunities, neither side could break the deadlock.

The goalless draw leaves the young Irishmen second in Group 2, four points adrift of Spain on 15 points, who have two games in hand.
