Norwich City youngsters Adam Idah and Simon Power saw their hopes of victory at the Toulon Tournament ended yesterday.
Both featured in the Republic of Ireland Under-21s' semi-final clash with Brazil's Under-22s, but it was the South Americans who went through, 2-0.
Brazil will now play Japan's Under-22s, who beat their Mexican counterparts on penalties.

Idah and Power will be hoping to end the Toulon Tournament with a victory when they take on Mexico in the play-off for third place on Saturday.
