Watch: All The Highlights From Republic Of Ireland V Austria

Here are the Republic of Ireland v Austria highlights.

The Republic of Ireland beat Austria 1-0 in their World Cup qualifying Group D clash in Vienna thanks to a brilliant finish from James McClean two minutes into the second half. The result puts the Irish in a great position at the top of the group ahead of a massive game against Wales at home in March.

McClean's finish was really brilliant and came at the end of a great move featuring Dave Meyler and Wes Hoolahan.

But on the other side of half time Jonathan Walters arguably should have put Ireland ahead, a delicious flick from Wes Hoolahan setting up Robbie Brady to fly a sumptuous ball across the face of the Austrian goal. Walters' effort flew just over the bar.


The main negative to come out of the game was the silly yellow card that Robbie Brady received which rules him out of the Republic's next game against Wales.


Martin O'Neill wasn't happy with Brady.

And it's fair to say that Martin, Roy and the lads were delighted/bloody relieved afterwards.


Meanwhile, here is Marko Arnautović's feeble attempt at spitting. A quick tutorial from El-Hadj Diouf is needed.
