City wide-man nets vital away goal for Euro hopefuls

NORWICH City's Robbie Brady found the net for Republic of Ireland in their Euro 2016 Qualifying play-off first-leg away to Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday night, in a match which eventually ended 1-1.

The Canaries wide-man put his side in front on 82 minutes by rifling low into the net from outside the box, only for Bosnia to equalise almost immediately through Edin Dzeko during a second half contested in deep fog.

Although Brady's strike had seemed set to give Martin O'Neill's men a vital win, they remain in a strong position courtesy of the away goals ruling ahead of the return leg in Dublin on Monday (7:45pm).

Wes Hoolahan completed an hour of the game before being replaced by James McClean.

Elsewhere, Kyle Lafferty resumed his role as Northern Ireland's striker-in-chief by starting their home friendly against Latvia.

The forward was replaced after 54 minutes, with the game ending 1-0 to the hosts thanks to Steven Davis' solitary strike.

Northern Ireland have already secured their place at Euro 2016, with Lafferty's seven goals playing a crucial part in their successful campaign.

Finally, Louis Thompson remained on the bench for Wales Under-21s' late 2-1 triumph over Armenia in European Championship Qualifying.
