Derby County’s Jason Knight made another start for the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday evening in the UEFA Nations League.

Midfielder Knight played 67 minutes in what was his third successive start as Ireland played out a 1-1 draw in an away fixture against Ukraine in Poland.

Nathan Collins' fine solo goal gave Ireland a first half lead in the League B Group 1 fixture, but Ukraine levelled straight after half-time through Artem Dovbyk.

Derby Academy graduate Knight, 21, now has 15 senior caps and has established himself on the international scene under Stephen Kenny.

Fellow Ram Festy Ebosele, who will depart the club at the end of his contract later this month to join Italian side Udinese, was an unused substitute.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, Derby defender Eiran Cashin claimed his second cap for the Republic of Ireland’s Under-21s as they tasted a 4-1 defeat against Italy in their final UEFA European Under-21 Championship Qualifier.

The result confirmed Italy’s automatic qualification from Group F to the 2023 finals in Georgia and Romania, while Ireland finished in second spot and will compete in the Play-Offs in September.

Cashin played 83 minutes of the game at Stadio Cino e Lillo Del Duca in Ascoli Piceno before being replaced.

Derby midfielder Krystian Bielik was once again absent from the Poland squad as they lost 1-0 at home to Belgium in the UEFA Nations League.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Rams attacking midfielder Ravel Morrison was once again named in the starting line-up as Jamacia played out a 1-1 draw against Mexico in the CONCACAF Nations League against Mexico at Independence Park in Kingston.

The League A clash finished in a 1-1 draw with Leon Bailey on target for the hosts early on, before Luis Romo hauled the visitors back on level terms just before half time.

Morrison played the full 90 minutes of the game and a top two finish in their group means they will compete in the CONCACAF Gold Cup next year, while they will head to Mexico next March to decide who will finish top of League A.
