Ireland 3 Armenia 2
A stoppage time Robbie Brady penalty secured Ireland three valuable Nations League points in a dramatic 3-2 win over Armenia.
The 30-year-old, making his first start for his country since March last year, converted a stoppage-time penalty to snatch victory after Ireland very nearly threw the game away.
They looked to be cruising to just their second win of the Group 1 campaign as they entered the final 20 minutes leading 2-0 through goals from John Egan and Michael Obafemi.
However, goals from Artak Dashyan and Eduard Spertsyan silenced the locals before Brady's last-gasp intervention, the build-up to which saw both Hovhannes Hambardzumyan and Dashyan dismissed.
The win - just manager Stephen Kenny's fourth in 21 competitive fixtures - came as a relief on a night when defeat would have meant relegation, but third place behind Scotland and Ukraine represents a poor return for a nation which set out with ambitions to win the group.
