The Republic of Ireland gained a valuable away point against Italy in Bari tonight thanks to a late Irish goal from top-scorer, Robbie Keane.
With Italy going a man down to a foul on O’Shea, they then scored a goal by Iaquinta.
The Italians went on the defensive for the remainder of the game.
Ireland took control of the game from then on without creating too many chances against the home side.
The goal finally came ten minutes from time when Keane turned in a Folan knockdown to get a precious point in Italy.
Happy days, now back to the Premiership where Liverpool play Fulham at Craven cottage on Saturday.
I see Alonso and Riera scored in a two-one win in Turkey, well done lads, bring on Fulham!
