Republic of Ireland went second in their FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifying Group with a 9-0 victory in Georgia.

Chasing a play-off spot at the 2023 World Cup, their result in Gori matched that achieved in Malta back in 2003.

Katie McCabe hit a hat-trick, Louise Quinn scored twice, Denise O’Sullivan and Megan Connolly once each, while there was a first senior goal for 17-year-old Abbie Larkin and defender Niamh Fahey opened her account in her 104th appearance.

Ireland next host Finland on 1 September before playing away to Slovakia five days later, as they look to secure second place in the group.
