  • It's all over and it's a devasting, dominating performance from Germany that leaves the Republic of Ireland flat and desperately disappointed. Thanks for your company at the Dublin Arena and I'll see you all soon.

  • Some late consolation for the hosts as Keogh meets the header after Schweinsteiger's error. Neuer is denied a clean sheet and at least the Republic are on target.

    90+2
  • GOAL FOR THE REPUBLIC - KEOGH!

    90+2
  • Kroos nearly finds his hat-trick but Westwood collects his drive from the edge of the area. Moments later, Neuer makes his first real save of the match to deny Keogh - in the Republic's only real chance of the game.

    90+1
  • Agony for the Republic's fans to hear, there's two minutes added time to beplayed.

    90
  • Kroos nearly finds the net with an outrageous effort from the left that may have been intended as a cross.

    90
  • Walters continues to battle but the skillful midfield of Germany retain possession despite the striker's best hussling. He's been a brighter spark for the hosts tonight.

    89
  • Andrews fires the free-kick straight into the wall - and that just about sums up the Republic's night.

    87
  • Badstuber is penalised for a lunge on Brady and picks up a yellow card for his trouble.

    86
  • Schurrle shows more fight than Brady down the right and ends up dispossessing the substitute far too easily.

    85
  • It's masterful from Germany, and one of the best goals you'll see in this qualifying campaign. A sensational sequence of passes, upwards of 20, ends with a stunning strike from Kroos on the edge of the area. 6-0 and a simply devastating result for the Republic to take.

    83
  • GOAL FOR GERMANY - KROOS!

    83
  • Brady comes on for the Republic with Cox the man taken off

    83
  • Schweinsteiger can't control Ozil's pass and the balls to Westwood. He launches the ball up long but Mertesacker continues to impose his dominance over Walters.

    81
  • Schmelzer battles fantastically against Coleman to win his side a throw-in, which ends up with the Germans attacking through Ozil, before Boateng's shot is well held by Westwood.

    79
  • Yellow card for Long, whos frustrations clearly boiled over as he slides in recklessly on Badstuber.

    78
  • It's all quite awkward now as Germany continue to boss possession with the Republic players and fans surely hanging on for the final whistle here.

    77
  • As some fans make their way to the exits, Schurrle looks for Podolski but again the offside flag saves the Republic.

    75
  • Podolski finds Boateng and eventually the ball finds its way back to him where Schweinsteiger is caught offside trying to retrieve his shot.

    74
  • Germany's final change sees Klose's night end and Schurrle's begin.
