The Republic of Ireland kept their World Cup dreams alive with a pulsating 1-nil victory over Wales in their final Group D qualifier in Cardiff last night.
The Boys in Green beat their hosts to the play off spot, thanks to James McClean’s sensational goal.
There were 57 minutes on the clock when the Derryman smashed home a cross from Jeff Hendrick, which Harry Arter had cleverly stepped over.
It was McClean’s 4th goal of the campaign.
The 28 year old says it is a sensational feeling to send his side to the play offs.
