Alexander Kerzhakov and Keith Andrews

90+3 min: “A bout of head tennis in the penalty area has Irish hearts in mouths again, but Ireland eventually hack clear and the referee blows for full time. That’s a heroic moral victory for Ireland – they could easily have lost that match by five or six goals.”

90 min: “We’re into added time. A draw isn’t much of a result for Ireland as far as qualifying for Euro 2012 is concerned, but under the circumstances it will be an extraordinary achievement if they manage to hold on and keep a clean sheet.”
