Ireland recovered remarkably well from the embarrassing defeat by Mexico on Friday. With a potential threatening Uruguay rocking up to the Aviva, Martin O'Neill would've wanted his players to make a statement ahead of the Austria game.
Boy, did he get it.
The Boys in Green would finish the game as a contest in style.
James McClean had only been on the pitch a matter of minutes when he latched onto a defence-splitting pass from Daryl Murphy, of all people.
Similar to his winner against Austria, the Derry man charged onto the ball and finished with power into the bottom corner.
