Here is a report from Ireland v Australia

Ireland 4-2 Australia - by James Clarke

As the clouds make way for one of the hottest days of the tournament, the crowd sent their support towards the two teams, who stepped up for this much awaited first leg of the semi-finals.

Only one minute on the clock gone and the Irish squad were ahead thanks to determined Kennith Kinset.

The Ireland squad were awarded caps before this match, by the Irish FA the highest award, for all their hard work.

For a big game like the semis, players need to stay calm. Kennith Kinset a prime example, replying with a clean finish getting his second of the match.

The first mistake for Ireland came when a defender breached the rules, by stepping in the area, giving the Aussies a chance to scrape back a goal but were denied.

Dermet, the Irish keeper, came out of his area giving away a penalty, but made up for it with a clean save.

The lucky four-leaf-clover boys, working as a team, and then produced another well-worked goal.

The first infringement of the second half was when unlucky Dermet stepped out of his area again, only to make a superb save.

A fluke use of the board by an Aussie took a stunning deflexion sending it into the mouth of the net.

The Irish squad proudly representing their home nation, held possession through to the end of the match.
