Davis strikes twice as Ireland battle back to earn a draw
The Republic of Ireland under-15s rounded off their visit to Doha with an impressive fightback against the Aspire Academy, Niall Harrison’s side came from three goals down to secure a 3-3 draw.
The Irish got off the mark after 58 minutes when Conor Levington found the net with a fine left-footed shot. Conor Davis got two over the closing stages to ensure the side returned home unbeaten in their two games.
“It’s been an excellent couple of days for these young lads as they start their international careers,” said Harrison.
