Irish win 11-0

The Republic of Ireland’s Amber Barrett celebrates after scoring Ireland’s 11th goal of the match in the Women's World Cup qualifying game against Georgia on Tuesday evening. The 11-0 win, breaking the previous record of nine goals for the national team, puts Ireland's World Cup hopes very much on track. It wasn't, though, the only big margin of the night -- England trounced Latvia 20-0 and Scotland lost 8-0 to Spain. The Irish team: Courtney Brosnan; Niamh Fahey, Louise Quinn, Diane Caldwell; Jess Ziu (Amber Barrett 75), Katie McCabe, Ruesha Littlejohn (Ciara Grant 67), Megan Connolly, Denise O’Sullivan; Lucy Quinn (Roma McLaughlin 67), Kyra Carusa (Saoirse Noonan 75).
