Luck Deserts The Irish In Windy Draw

Coventry City’s Irish stars had to battle in strong winds in Boston, but could only get a draw against the United States.

Gary Breen was pressed into action against former Sky Blue Cobi Jones when he managed to stifle him in a threatened break on goal.

Barry Quinn only made a brief appearance, coming on as a substitute just before the end.

More worryingly for Coventry, Robbie Keane missed the game with a groin injury.

Cobi Jones equalled the record number of caps for a United States player, when he made his 128th appearance.

With winds reaching 60mph, the game was less than fluent, and Chicago Fire forward Ante Razov scored from an off-side position to wipe out Dominic Foley’s opener for the Irish.

Meanwhile Morocco lost 1-5 to France, but neither Moustapha Hadji nor Youseef Chippo were in action for the home team.
