Ward Makes Clarets Euro History

18 June 2016

Stephen Ward has written himself into the Clarets history books by becoming the first ever Burnley player to appear at the European Championship finals.

Ward played the full 90 minutes for the Republic of Ireland in their 3-0 defeat to Belgium in Group E at the Stade de Bordeaux.

A brace from Everton’s Romelu Lukaku and an Axel Witsel strike in the second-half proved the difference.

Martin O’Neill’s men will now prepare to face Italy in their final group game on Wednesday 22nd June at Stade Pierre Mauroy - Lille Métropole where they must win to reach the last 16.
