Leeds United teenager Eoghan Stokes was on target for the Republic of Ireland Under-19 side for the second match in a row.

Leeds United youngster Eoghan Stokes cannot stop scoring at the moment - he simply cannot.

The teenager was on target in midweek when he scored for the Republic of Ireland Under-19 side in their 1-0 win against Malta in a European Championship Group Six clash.

Stokes’s only goal of the encounter saw the Ireland U19 team enjoy the best possible start to their campaign, and he continued to fire in the goals on Saturday.

The Leeds wonderkid scored twice for the Ireland U19s as they eased past Gibraltar 4-1 at Ferrycarrig Park, Wexford.

The youngster netted his first goal of the match in the 32nd minute when he turned in a Reece Grego-Cox cross from close range. Then midway through the second half, Stokes fired home from 25 yards.

The victory saw Ireland secure their place in Elite Phase of the UEFA U19 Championships, leading Stokes to revel in the success on social networking site Twitter.
