The Republic of Ireland's Under-21s took another step towards Euro 2021 qualification with a 4-1 victory over Sweden in Dublin.

Viktor Gyökeres opened the scoring with a fine strike before the hosts responded through Lee O'Connor.

Adam Idah's excellent finish put Stephen Kenny's side in front before Troy Parrott and Zach Elbouzedi sealed the win.

The win keeps the Republic top of Group One, three points ahead of Italy.

Gyökeres broke the deadlock on 18 minutes with a fine solo effort, cutting in from the left before bending a low finish beyond Gavin Bazunu.

The Republic came out firing in the second half and got their reward five minutes into the second half when O'Connor, up from right-back, swept home Idah's cross into the top corner.

Idah turned from provider to goalscorer by finishing Elbouzedi's low ball into the area to put the Republic ahead on 63 minutes.

Highly-rated Tottenham striker Parrott put daylight between the sides with a fine finish on 73 minutes before Elbouzedi tapped home from close range to complete the rout.
