Football Results: France 1 -1 Ireland
A stubborn Irish side came from behind to earn themselves a well earned point against a much fancied French side to draw 1-1 at the home ground of the local side, St. Igny FC.
Despite the lack of preparations due to recent unfortunate developments within Deaf Sports Ireland, captain Roy McKee and his boys gave a resilient and defiant performance as they took on the French with instructions from manager Geoff Foy to impose themselves early in the game with an adventurous game plan. However disaster struck as the boys in green found themselves reeling within three minutes of kick off after the French capitalized on an error conceded by the Irish midfield to mercilessly sweep through the exposed Irish defence, rifling the ball past goalkeeper Roy Keating.
