Dave Connell's Republic of Ireland Women's Under-19s ended their UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship Qualifying Round with a 100% record after a 3-0 win last night against Ukraine, in Lithuania.

 A goal from Lucia Lobato in the first-half, followed by two goals in the final ten minutes from Alannah McEvoy and Tiegan Ruddy meant Ireland ended the campaign with 13-goals scored, and none conceded.

Newport's Rachel Baynes was awarded FAI player of the match afterwards.

The draw for the Elite Round will take place in November, with the matches to be played in Spring 2019.
