Debutant David McGoldrick made a big impression for the Republic of Ireland as they secured a 4-1 friendly win at home against the United States. The Ipswich Town FC player set up the opening goal for Anthony Pilkington after just seven minutes and although Mix Dikserud equalised for the visitors with a 34th-minute strike, Ireland took control in the second half with goals from Robbie Brady (55, 86) and James McClean (81).
