Midfielder enjoys international success after penalty shoot-out win...

Congratulations to United midfielder Rodolph Austin, who captained Jamaica to Caribbean Cup glory after a penalty shoot-out win over Trinidad and Tobago in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

With nothing to separate the sides after extra-time, Austin scored what proved to be the winning spot-kick as Jamaica won 4-3 on penalties following a 0-0 draw at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.

He completed the full 90 minutes and extra-time in a closely-fought contest before going on to collect the Man of the Match award after showing nerves of steel from 12 yards.

The 29-year-old was also handed the competition's Most Valuable Player (Golden Ball) award after playing a key role in the Reggae Boyz country claiming a sixth Caribbean Cup title.

Austin ended the tournament with one goal to his name - a header in Friday's 3-0 win over Antigua and Barbuda - and was Jamaica's driving force from midfield, collecting the individual award he won back in 2010.

The victory ensured Jamaica's qualification for the 2016 Copa America and they will be the top seeded team for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Elsewhere on the international front, young striker Eoghan Stokes played 74 minutes as the Republic of Ireland's Under-19s drew 1-1 with Switzerland.

Stokes, who has been in sensational form for his country, was substituted with 16 minutes remaining on the clock for the 10-men hosts, who had captain Noe Baba dismissed.

The result meant Switzerland claimed top spot in Group Six of the UEFA U19s Championships qualifying round, but both sides had already sealed their progression prior to kick-off.
