Ireland's U-17s are getting the tough tests they need ahead of hosting next summer's Euro Finals, after suffering a second defeat in four days yesterday.

Colin O'Brien's side has recovered from an interval deficit to the Czech Republic in their UEFA 2-1 up, only to concede twice in the final half-hour.

Eight changes were made to the team beaten 3-1 by England and they went behind on the half hour.

The turnaround was kick-started four minutes after the restart by Anselmo Garcia MacNulty, who made it 1-1 with a looping volley.

Sean Kennedy completed a moving move two minutes later to put Ireland ahead.
