Watch: Shamrock Rovers' Graham Burke Grabs 1st Ireland Goal

Although Stephen Bradley may well have preferred to have use of his services last night, Shamrock Rovers' Graham Burke grabbed his first goal for Ireland tonight.

In a tie that signals John O'Shea's final international appearance, the 24-year-old Burke grabbed Martin O'Neill's men an equaliser after falling one behind to Bobby Wood's opener for the USA.

With neither of the teams poised to compete in this summer's World Cup in Russia, tonight's game at the Aviva Stadium will not go down as the most memorable post-club season friendly.

However, for Burke, its unlikely to be ever forgotten.

There was a huge swell of support for the former Aston Villa man after grabbing his first international goal.
