Dublin netminder Stephen Cluxton's two uncharacteristic mistakes have gifted Kerry two goals at Croke Park

Dublin led by 0-9 to 0-4 and looked in cruise control but they coughed up 2-4 in the final 14 minutes of the opening half to put the Kingdom five points up at the interval.

A wayward kickout  straight into Paul Geaney's hands resulted in Donnchadh Walsh flicking the ball to Darran O'Sullivan to score.

Not long after afterwards, Anthony Maher's speculative shot dropped under the bar and Geaney flicked the ball past Cluxton for Kerry's second.
