Ireland 0 v Brazil 1 (Day 1, May 1st)
Ireland faced Brazil in the first game of the group stages on Sunday afternoon, May 1st. Brazil took control early on, driving into a 2-0 lead before the break. A strong display from Ireland in the second half kept Brazil's attacks to a minimum though but unfortunately, somewhat against the run of play, Brazil drilled home a third and final goal to win 3-0.

Ireland 1 v Great Britain 3 (Day 2)
There was major disappointment for the Irish CP Football squad on Monday evening as the side suffered their second defeat of the CP Football Pre-Paralympic Games tournament in Salou at the hands of near-neighbours, Great Britain.
A decent first half saw the boys in green keep the GB attack at bay, and solid performances from Conor Tuite and Luke Evans kept Ireland in touch at the break as they went in trailing 1-0. However, the second half saw Great Britain step it up, and though Luke Evans scored a cracking goal for Ireland, Great Britain had the edge and drilled home two more goals to take the win on a final scoreline of 3-1.
