  • WHAT A GOAL!!!!! MAHMUDOV FIRES AZERBAIJAN AHEAD!!!!! 1-0!!!!! The visitors take the lead on the stroke of half-time through a stunning effort from Mahmudov. Ireland back off the midfielder on the edge of the box and afford him space and time to line up a shot. He curls his effort away from Bazunu into the top-left corner. A huge moment for Azerbaijan.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! DUFFY HEADS HOME THE EQUALISER!!!! 1-1!!!!! Ireland find a leveller with three minutes of normal time to play. Duffy remains up from the back giving Cullen a target to hit in the box. The delivery is on point from the midfielder and Duffy does not disappoint with a thumping header that erupts through the hands of Mahammadaliyev before hitting the back of the net. Do Ireland have time for a winner?
