Another fine win for the Irish juggernaut but what's more important is the manner in which they dispatched Zimbabwe. Dillon was again scintillating scoring his now customary 4 goals. He was ably assisted by Mylett and Nolan who mopped up, hustled and harried, playing some intricate football and both scoring with superb efforts.
The second half saw the changes with Mukumbu Bissett and Leahy taking the field but to be honest it was hard to see the difference as Ireland bossed the game scoring another 3 goals one each.
Leahy in particular stood out controlling the game and treating the ball as you would a precious stone never letting out of his reach and always showing for his team mates. He showed a great maturity in game management
When our defence was breached the ever dependable Doyle was there to mop up superbly making important saves at vital times. He has been impressing all and is one of the competition's best keepers.
Into the hat for this evening's draw and hoping for a break however the mood in the camp tonite is bring on anyone and why not Ireland are as impressive an outfit as any out here. These boys continue to make an impression.
It was a big game for Irish women's team against hosting team Norway but our girls were back with a bang.
Sharon Tansey got the opening goal of the game making it 1 - 0. Louise Murphy closely following with her first goal of the tournament bringing the score to 2 - 0.
This set the tone and pace of the game and the Norwegian keeper didn't have time to blink as the Irish team started a quick fire succession of goals hitting them in fast and furiously. Tansey scored the third goal followed by Murphy with the forth, quickly followed with a fifth making it a hat trick for woman of the moment.
Tansey followed in her footsteps landing Ireland's sixth goal of the game and bagging herself a hat trick also. Vanessa Lynch stepped in then to secure a seventh goal before Murphy took over scoring Ireland's eight game of the game and her forth. Lynch swooped back in for Ireland's ninth goal before Tara Mc Neill stuck it in the back of the net for the final score of the game making it Ireland's tenth and a final score of Ireland 10 - 0 Norway.
