We were robbed. Duffys goal was fine, no reason not to give it for the ref.

Far better second half performance and a decent point in the end.
Austria hanging on the last 10mins. Pity about the disallowed goal. A draw between Serbia and Wales would be a good result now I suppose.
Great goal from Walters.

Dreadful performance against a very average side who were missing a lot of players. Could have qualified tonight.

Much better in second half alright. Thought it was a right decision to disallow the goal.
Austria missed a few chances so I think it's silly to say we were robbed.

It was an opportunity lost for the republic. Austria are an average side and should have been beaten but we didn't deserve it, we didn't play well enough in the first half and early in the second half. We were robbed because there was no foul. The ref just made it up.

It was a foul and proper decision to disallow it.
It was never a peno either.

If Duffy didn't fully commit it probably would have been a goal anyway as the Austrian defender was way behind the goal line. Should have started as we finished but its the same every time. Relief to get a point but will be looked back on as 2 dropped points.

Could also turn out to be a very important point.

To be fair Walters could have been pulled for the goal .  We didn't deserve to win :

Not too Sure what I want from this welsh game a draw would make sense however wales win and we are still top. Serbia win and wales are out of it.

Looking at the otter groups and the second place team in our section stands a good chance of missing out on play off spot as worst placed second team. At the minute our total of 12 (If Serbia win or draw) would put us joint bottom.

I think I would like a Wales win. It would put Serbia behind us by a point going into the clash with us in Landsdowne in September. It is all about winning the group as someone else said, the second place team in this group might well miss out because it is a competitive group.
