Martin O'Neill has admitted that he will have to reconsider his attacking strategy for Ireland's remaining Euro 2016 away games this autumn in the aftermath of Sunday's dramatic win in Georgia.
The Ireland boss has conceded that his side's display left plenty of room for improvement and one issue was the manner in which lone striker Robbie Keane was isolated for periods of the game.
O'Neill went with a three-man central midfield to give the team balance and allow matchwinner Aiden McGeady the freedom to focus less on defensive duties.
However, the Derryman acknowledged that Keane found it hard at times and attributed that to a lack of support from midfield.
"The idea was to get to him and give him a little bit of help a wee bit more quickly," said O'Neill, "That was the idea with Glenn Whelan being in the middle and the other two [Stephen Quinn and James McCarthy] going forward as often as they could. At times, it looked as if we didn't get decent movement."
Whatever happens, McGeady will be central to the strategy, with O'Neill prepared to forgive the Everton man's occasional lapses.
"He is a rare talent and he'll be a danger," said the Irish boss.
