The Ecstatic Irish Reaction As Scotland Mess Up In Slovenia

The Ecstatic Irish Reaction As Scotland Mess Up In Slovenia

Thanks to Scotland, you can now delete the word 'permutations' from your predictive text. Ireland now know that World Cup qualification is in their own hands, as the runner-up in Group F is guaranteed to rank among the best runners-up with 12 points. Should Irelandย beat Wales in Cardiff tomorrow night, we'll finish with 13 points...and be in the draw for the playoffs.

These things have ended as they often have for Ireland, as it was Scotland wot done it. They needed to beat Slovenia away from home to get into the playoffs, and led 1-0 at half-time through Leigh Griffiths. They didn't show up for the second half, however, and fell 2-1 behind, both goals scored by Roman Bezjak.

It was a nervy finish: Scotland equalised through Robert Snodgrass, but ultimately it finished 2-2. Here's the Irish reaction to a dramatic game, after which our destiny is officially in our own hands.
