International round-up: Randolph's Ireland triumph against Uruguay

Darren Randolph in action for Ireland

Darren Randolph started as the Republic of Ireland bounced back from their midweek defeat to Mexico in style by beating Uruguay in Dublin on Sunday.

Having lost out by a 3-1 margin to Mexico in the United States, Ireland triumphed by an identical margin on their return to the Aviva Stadium.

The West Ham United goalkeeper played 45 minutes - winning his 21st cap for Ireland - to round-off the preparations for next Sunday's FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Austria in style.

Jonathan Walters opened the scoring for the home side, and although Jose Giminez levelled before half-time, further goals from Cyrus Christie and James McClean gave Martin O'Neill's side victory.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Hammers youngster Dan Kemp was fouled for the penalty which gave England U20s the lead in their final Toulon Tournament group stage game against Japan.

Starting for the second time in the tournament, Kemp was brought down in the 25th minute, allowing George Hirst to fire the Young Lions in front.

Japan levelled in the second half, but England had the last word, sealing a 2-1 victory thanks to Chelsea's Martell Taylor-Crossdale.

England now progress to the semi-finals, looking to win this competition for the second year in succession.

Earlier this weekend, Jose Fonte played as Portugal comfortably defeated Cyprus 4-0 in a friendly encounter.
