Ireland are the champions again and deservedly so. They beat Laos handily, despite the fact that the Laos keeper played a great game and stopped a ton of great chances. Laos attempted to play the same style as El Salvador in the semifinals, and it worked for a while. But then one bad miscue at the back and suddenly David Brown had his first goal of the game and the score was 1-0 for Ireland at half.
Laos pushed a tiny bit more to begin the second half and Ireland capitalized immediately. A cross low into the box was put away fantastically by David Brown as he slid along the ground and redirected it in. The third Ireland goal came as Mike Collins and Jay Tomchuk conducted a nifty give-and-go along the right wing that allowed Jay to walk into the box and roof a rocket over the Loas keepers hands. Laos never really threatened to score. Ireland wins 3-0.
