Robbie Starts For Ireland And Liam Reaches Copa America

23 March 2024

Robbie Brady started for Republic of Ireland on Saturday against Belgium, while Liam Millar was part of the Canada squad which sealed a place at this summer's Copa América.

Robbie was named in the starting XI by his country for the first time since September 2022 for a friendly at the Aviva Stadium against Belgium, and he played 81 minutes as they held the Red Devils to a goalless draw.

Later in the day, Liam was named on the bench for Canada as they faced Trinidad and Tobago in a crucial one-leg Play-Off match, with a place in the Copa América at stake.

Goals from Cyle Larin and Jacob Shaffelburg earned a 2-0 victory in Texas, meaning they will take on Argentina, Chile and Peru in this summer's tournament.

Elsewhere, Ali McCann featured as a 71st-minute substitute in Northern Ireland's 1-1 draw against Romania in Bucharest on Friday, while Kian Best played 72 minutes for England U19s in their draw against Morocco.

Besty will be hoping to feature again in Sunday morning's clash against the USA, whereas Ali faces a short trip to Scotland on Tuesday night and Robbie will face Switzerland at the Aviva Stadium on the same evening.
