Armenia leave Ireland flailing

Republic of Ireland 1-2 Armenia
Armenia survived the late dismissal of Masis Voskanyan to pull further clear of their hosts at the bottom of Group 2.

The Republic of Ireland are three points adrift at the foot of UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 2 after losing 2-0 at home to fellow strugglers Armenia.

Sean Scannell and Cillian Sheridan both had opportunities to set the game on a different course but Armenia punished Ireland's profligacy on 34 minutes when Levon Hayrapetyan went past a host of home defenders and finished from the edge of the penalty area. Gevorg Ghazaryan cemented the visitors' lead with a free-kick five minutes prior to half-time before Masis Voskanyan's late dismissal and Ian Daly's scrambled goal offered Ireland brief hope. Seamus Coleman went closest to drawing his side level but Armenia clung on for a win that takes them clear of the bottom of the section.
