INTERNATIONAL ROUND-UP

10 June 2019

Judge shines for Ireland while El Mizouni makes Tunisia debut

Blues duo Alan Judge and Idris El Mizouni were in international action over the weekend.

Alan earned his sixth cap and picked up an assist for the Republic of Ireland as the Boys in Green drew 1-1 with Denmark in a Euro 2020 qualifier on Friday evening.

The Town midfielder was introduced to the action in the 66th minute, and whipped in a free-kick that was headed in by Brighton's Shane Duffy to earn a point for Mick McCarthy's side five minutes from time in Copenhagen.

After the final whistle it was confirmed that Alan had suffered a broken wrist in the closing stages, and will miss Monday's game against Gibraltar as Ireland look to stretch their lead at the top of qualifying group D.

Eighteen-year-old Idris also turned out for his national side on Friday evening as he made his full debut for Tunisia.

The Blues midfielder came on in the 81st minute as Tunisia beat Iraq 2-0 in Rades.
