The Republic of Ireland were in good preparation for their Euro 2020 qualifier against Denmark as they went on to beat New Zealand 3-1 at the Aviva Stadium on Thursday night.
Callum McCowatt had opened the scoreline for New Zealand before Derrick Williams, Sean Maguire and Callum Robinson scored the three goals for Ireland to see them through to meet Denmark on Monday in a crucial qualifier.
Debutant Troy Parrott of Tottenham Hotspur who was called up to replace Aaron Connolly of Brighton & Hove Albion put on an impressive display in defence - he even secured an assist for Maguire to score for Ireland.
Another debutant Lee O'Connor who made history as the first Celtic player in five years to feature for the Irish was on perfect form as well as he teed up with Robinson who found the back from a few yards - making it his first international goal.
As the Republic of Ireland secured a superb win, Mick McCarthy's charges will hope to keep up the same form as they meet Denmark on Monday, November 18.
