Robbie Keane headed against the Poland woodwork in the second half

29 March 2015

Shane Long's injury-time equaliser rescued a vital draw for the Republic of Ireland against Group D leaders Poland in their Euro 2016 qualifier.

Robbie Brady was caught in possession, gifting Slawomir Peszko Poland's 26th-minute opener.

Aiden McGeady went close for the Irish while Robbie Keane headed against a post with Seamus Coleman missing a great chance before Long's late goal.

The defeat leaves the Republic three points behind Poland.

World champions Germany and Scotland earned routine 2-0 and 6-1 Group D wins over Georgia and minnows Gibraltar respectively earlier in the day and it was vital that the Irish got something from the game.

The Republic are now two points behind Germany and the Scots with the Poles still leading Group D.
