The Irish Women's team have been beaten by Hungary in their latest Cyprus Cup game.

Despite dominating their opponents for much of the game, Sue Ronan's side were beaten 1-0 in their final Group A match.


Hungary's goal came against the run of play late on, while Megan Connolly's penalty miss with 11 minutes to go saw Ireland miss out on a chance to equalise.


The result means that Ireland finished the group stages with just one point from three matches and they will now face Finland in a 7th/8th place play-off on Wednesday.
