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.

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

Checked again there and my memory is failing me, two other groups 2nd place are lower and we're level with another group.

Teams that are tied are decided on goal difference but is there something about the results against the bottom team are omitted?

Georgia next beat them and if wales and Austria draw then we are 6 points clear of both them with 3 games to go including a home game against Moldova ie almost guaranteed second. Georgia though could be a banana skin, just ask the Scots.

just when you think Ireland are improving they produce that performance

worst team line up I have seen in a long time

Seamus Coleman has nearly been carrying the team
