The closing stages of Ireland's nail-biting 1-0 win over Wales in Cardiff last night had the nation gripped, with RTE revealing that 1.1 million people were watching the game as the clock ticked into injury time.

An average audience of 861,200 saw the Boys in Green book a World Cup playoff spot, with 51.28% of the TV audience at the time watching RTE 2.

Ireland's win also saw the highest amount of live streams this year on the RTE Player, with 123,254 watching the game on the online platform. The previous high in 2017 was 107,451 for the All-Ireland football final.

Ireland will play the first leg of the playoff between 9-11 November and the second leg between 12-14 November.
