Shane Duffy may be perceived as an immovable force in the heart of the Irish defence, but the same cannot be said for his pre-match demeanour.

Duffy's steely on-field persona may be in tatters after the Brighton defender was the only Irish player to jump at the fireworks during the pre-match handshakes.

However, the Ireland defender did manage to regain his composure after slotting in at the centre of Ireland's defence alongside captain Ciaran Clark.
