  • GAME OVER! McClean's looping ball from the flank drops into the path of Knight, who leaps to control a cushioned pass into the path of Robinson. He then slots the ball into an unguarded goal from close range. An excellent move against a tiring Luxembourg defence, as Ireland go 3-0 up. That's the game signed, sealed and delivered!
