O’Dowda nets in Glasgow

Callum O’Dowda was on target for the Republic of Ireland in their 2-2 draw with Celtic this afternoon.

Martin O’Neill’s Ireland XI travelled to face the Scottish champions at Celtic Park for Scott Brown’s testimonial, in a game where no international caps were awarded.

In front of a near capacity crowd, Alan Browne broke the deadlock in the third minute after O’Dowda intercepted a defensive clearance, but his delicate left-footed strike was cancelled out by Leigh Griffiths’ close range finish moments before the interval.

The visitors regained the lead on the hour mark when O’Dowda - who completed 90 minutes - cut inside and his vicious effort from 25 yards went in off the upright.

The 23-year-old’s strike triggered a number of substitutes and moments later, a defensive error from former City player Greg Cunningham allowed Patrick Roberts to net the equaliser in his final game for the Hoops.

O’Neill’s side will now return to Dublin to prepare for their upcoming friendlies with France and USA.
