Clark, Hoolahan on target as Ireland win



Ciaran Clark and Wes Hoolahan scored in either half to give Ireland a 2-0 international friendly win over Poland on Wednesday.

Defender Clark pounced on a loose ball after 35 minutes following a scramble from a set-piece to drill home and set 41st-ranked Ireland on their way to victory over their lower-placed opponents, with Poland 56th.

Hoolahan put the result beyond any doubt with 14 minutes remaining when he latched onto Jeff Hendrick's pass by using his chest and sent a delightful finish past substitute keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Ireland, who are third in their 2014 World Cup qualifying group, next play second-placed Sweden on March 22 while Poland, third in Group H, host Ukraine on the same date next month.
