  1. It's all over and it's a devasting, dominating performance from Germany that leaves the Republic of Ireland flat and desperately disappointed. Thanks for your company at the Dublin Arena and I'll see you all soon.

  2. 90+2

    Some late consolation for the hosts as Keogh meets the header after Schweinsteiger's error. Neuer is denied a clean sheet and at least the Republic are on target.

  3. 90+2

    GOAL FOR THE REPUBLIC - KEOGH!

  4. 90+1

    Kroos nearly finds his hat-trick but Westwood collects his drive from the edge of the area. Moments later, Neuer makes his first real save of the match to deny Keogh - in the Republic's only real chance of the game.

  5. 90

    Agony for the Republic's fans to hear, there's two minutes added time to beplayed.

  6. 90

    Kroos nearly finds the net with an outrageous effort from the left that may have been intended as a cross.

  7. 89

    Walters continues to battle but the skillful midfield of Germany retain possession despite the striker's best hussling. He's been a brighter spark for the hosts tonight.

  8. 87

    Andrews fires the free-kick straight into the wall - and that just about sums up the Republic's night.

  9. 86

    Badstuber is penalised for a lunge on Brady and picks up a yellow card for his trouble.

  10. 85

    Schurrle shows more fight than Brady down the right and ends up dispossessing the substitute far too easily.

  11. 83

    It's masterful from Germany, and one of the best goals you'll see in this qualifying campaign. A sensational sequence of passes, upwards of 20, ends with a stunning strike from Kroos on the edge of the area. 6-0 and a simply devastating result for the Republic to take.

  12. 83

    GOAL FOR GERMANY - KROOS!

  13. 83

    Brady comes on for the Republic with Cox the man taken off

  14. 81

    Schweinsteiger can't control Ozil's pass and the balls to Westwood. He launches the ball up long but Mertesacker continues to impose his dominance over Walters.

  15. 79

    Schmelzer battles fantastically against Coleman to win his side a throw-in, which ends up with the Germans attacking through Ozil, before Boateng's shot is well held by Westwood.

  16. 78

    Yellow card for Long, whos frustrations clearly boiled over as he slides in recklessly on Badstuber.

  17. 77

    It's all quite awkward now as Germany continue to boss possession with the Republic players and fans surely hanging on for the final whistle here.

  18. 75

    As some fans make their way to the exits, Schurrle looks for Podolski but again the offside flag saves the Republic.

  19. 74

    Podolski finds Boateng and eventually the ball finds its way back to him where Schweinsteiger is caught offside trying to retrieve his shot.

  20. 72

    Germany's final change sees Klose's night end and Schurrle's begin.
