2019-09-10 Ireland v Bulgaria

An international friendly between Ireland and Bulgaria saw an uneventful first half as both teams sought to keep ball and play it around, however, in the second half, Ireland had an effort on goal which was spilled by Bulgaria’s stopper Hristo Ivanov and Alan Browne was in the right place to tap home on 56 minutes. The visitors drew level after captain John Egan felled Bozhidar Kraev and 2nd half captain Ivelin Popov stepped up to convert. Shamrock Rovers star Jack Byrne delivered a corner for Kevin Long to finish at the back post rewarding the home support. The best move of the game wrapped up proceedings and the win for Ireland as James Collins completed a nice move following on from Enda Stevens brilliant first time cross 3-1.
