Denise O'Sullivan scored the only goal of the game against Albania.

Ballinasloe's Heather Payne helped the Republic of Ireland Women's team secure promotion to League A of the Nations League last night.

The Everton forward came on as a half time substitute for Eileen Gleeson's side as a late Denise O'Sullivan goal was enough for a 1-0 win. 

The game was suspended at half-time, with heavy rainfall making the pitch waterlogged following a thunderstorm.

It was resumed after an hour, with the Girls in Green snatching a late win to make it four wins from four in Group B1.
