Republic youngsters held by Russia
The Republic of Ireland were held to a 2-2 draw with Russia in their under-21 friendly in Marbella, Spain.
Ireland took a fifth-minute lead through Brighton's Glen Rea at the Marbella Football Center.
Shelbourne's Dylan Connolly scored Ireland's second after 47 minutes, but Russia responded.
It was a second game without a win for the Irish in Spain after their defeat to the United States on Saturday.
The Russian fightback came despite the 26th-minute sending off of Dmitri Efremov.
Ireland's two-goal lead lasted until Alexander Morgunov's effort in the 65th minute, and Ramil Sheydaev then levelled 13 minutes from time.
