Ireland 1 GB 1

Ireland produced a vastly improved performance against Great Britain in their second match of the series, coming away with a 1-1 draw.

Ireland started strongly, rewarded in the 17th minute when Nikki Symmons’ cross was miskicked by the GB keeper. Roisin Flinn latched onto the loose ball to convert for Ireland's one nil lead.

After the break, GB came out with all guns blazing, applying a full press. But the Irish defended well, conceding just one corner that they dealt with well.

GB did find an equaliser from a quick free outside the circle, Alex Danson on hand to deflect it into the back of the Irish net.

Coach Muller was a lot happier after today's performance when he commented "I am really pleased that we played more according to our potential today it was a huge improvement on yesterday. We were sharper, more competitive and we were more creative The players should feel very good about their performance."
