O’Dowda’s Ireland beaten in Cardiff

Callum O’Dowda’s Republic of Ireland were comfortably beaten by Wales in their UEFA Nations League opener.

City’s wideman completed 90 minutes at the Cardiff City Stadium, as Ryan Giggs celebrated his first competitive game in charge with a 4-1 victory.

The hosts set the tone when they broke the deadlock as early as the sixth minute through Tom Lawrence, before Gareth Bale doubled their advantage with a curling left-footed strike from the edge of the area.

Aaron Ramsey made it three as half-time approached and the game was put beyond doubt when Connor Roberts rifled a thunderbolt beyond Darren Randolph from 20 yards.

Shaun Williams did reduce the deficit for Martin O’Neill’s side in the 66th minute when he seized on a Ramsey mistake, but it proved nothing but a consultation.

O’Dowda and his teammates will now return to Ireland before travelling to face Poland in an international friendly on Tuesday (September 11th).
