Mark McGuinness and Joel Bagan both played the full 90 minutes as the Republic of Ireland U21 team recorded a vital 2-0 victory over Sweden in UEFA U21 EURO 2023 Qualifying action.

The two City defenders helped Jim Crawford's side to keep a valuable clean sheet against the Swedes, who were sitting at the top of Group F before play, with Ross Tierney and Tyreik Wright on the scoresheet.

The win puts the Republic of Ireland within touching distance of Sweden in second place, with Italy taking top spot in the group after beating Bosnia & Herzegovina on Tuesday evening.
