  • WHAT A STRIKE! Under fire for his controversial comments about vaccination last week, Robinson cracks home an unstoppable left-footed strike from more than 20 yards out. The winger celebrates by pointedly placing his fingers in his ears, as he is mobbed by ecstatic team-mates. Ireland lead 1-0!

  • ROBINSON AT THE DOUBLE! Ireland increase their advantage through Robinson, who cuts inside from the left and neatly places a low, curving shot past the outstretched glove of Mahammadaliyev. Surely they can now break their victory drought in this qualifying campaign? Azerbaijan 0-2 Republic of Ireland!
