Watch: Crucial 96th Minute Winner Keeps Ireland U21s Euros Dream Alive
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

A dramatic 96th-minute winner from Shaun Donnellan secured the Republic of Ireland U21s a crucial victory over Azerbaijan in Tallaght Stadium tonight.

Noel King’s side’s dream of a place in next year's Uefa Finals lives on thanks to the Yeovil man's last gasp finish after a deep Ryan Manning cross.

Declan Rice and Kieran O'Hara returned to the team after their inclusion in Martin O'Neill's squad last week and both started tonight's match. The win means Ireland are now second in the group, three points behind Germany who were held to a scoreless draw earlier today. They are also two points ahead of Kosovo and Norway. The task is still a difficult one with home and away ties to Germany to come but the youngsters will live to fight another day after tonight's finish.

Next up is an away tie with Kosovo later this year.
