  1. Thats it from me tonight. Hope you enjoyed the commentary - and , if you're Irish, the outcome. not a classic but a fairytale for Robbie Keane. The night very much belonged to him in more ways than one.

  2. 93

    Unsurprisingly it was Robbie Keane who stole the show on the occasion of his 126th appearance. He now has 59 goals for his country

  3. 93

    Full time - this could and should have been far more comprehensive for the Irish but its a good way to end the season's qualifiers - up to third and still have a chance of qualifying.

  4. 90

    Three minutes of added time to go

  5. 89

    Robbie Keane has been named Man of the Match - hardly a shock!

  6. 87

    What a finish from Robbie Keane........ unfortunately he'd already been flagged for offside!

  7. 83

    Holst comes off and Samuelsen comes on

  8. 82

    Coleman slides it insde for Keane, who tries to play it back to Coleman but can't - the corner falls to Cox on the edge of the box but his shot is well over

  9. 82

    Stephen Kelly replaces Marc Wilson

  10. Coleman played it into Sammon on the near post, he turns and knocks it across the six-yard line - who else but Robbie Keane is there to tap in

  11. 80

    Goal!!!! Robbie Keane competes his hat trick!!!

  12. 77

    McGeady is brought off, much to his obvious disgust - shame really as he's done really well tonight. James McLean is on

  13. 74

    They can't cope with McGeady's direct way of playing. He's runs from collecting the ball on the halfway line- unchallenged to the edge of the box... he needs to make more of the final pass though or his decision making at the end of a run.. so much opportunity

  14. 71

    And Ireland make a change - Conor Sammon replaces Jon Walters

  15. 71

    Hoolahan is booked on his first start for Ireland for a late challenge

  16. 68

    Cox plays the ball in from the right, falls to McGeady but he can't put the gloss on his great performance this time - hits the ball into the ground and its harmless

  17. 66

    Good move, the excellend McGeady plays a cross-field pass to Cox who plays in in first time but it just evades Walters as the ball's cleared at the near post.

  18. 63

    Corner comes in - easily claimed by David Forde

  19. 63

    Edmundsson replaces Klettskaro

  20. 63

    Free kick to the Faroes is played in by Olsen and headed behind by O'Shea
