  • FULL TIME. That's it, Ireland slump to defeat here in Dublin. Coleman's performance was a plus point for the hosts but the final ball into the box let them down tonight. Thanks for your input tonight, stay with us for reaction.

  • Coleman wins a throw in 25 yards out on the right. Ireland take and keep possession before Clark's pass is intercepted and cleared.

    90 (+2)
  • Four minutes of added time are announced.

  • Fortunis releases Salpingidis into the right side of the box who crosses dangerously across the six yards box towards Athanasiadis at the far post but it is just ahead of his team-mate and Ireland clear.

  • Meyler tries to cross into the box from 30 yards in the centre but Tachtsidis charges the ball down and clears.

  • Meyler tries to pass to Ward on the left flank but his pass is misplaced and it is a Greece throw in to the left side of their box.

  • Tziolis wins a corner on the left. Greece take the corner short and Fortunis crosses into the box before Athanasiadis heads well wide from 12 yards in the centre.

  • McClean takes the free-kick but it is too close to the keeper who easily gathers.

  • Fortunis fouls Coleman for a free-kick 30 yards out on the right. He is rightly booked.

  • Keogh dis-possesses Tziolis midway in the Greece half but the ref blows for a foul.

  • Ireland take the throw in and Ward crosses into the box from 15 yards on the left but Greece clear.

  • Spyropoulos is on for Stafylidis for Greece.

  • McClean wins a throw in ten yards out on the left.

  • Lull - the teams are cancelling each other out in the centre at present.

  • Ireland keep good possession but Meyler is tackled by Tziolis midway in the Greece half on the right.

  • Greece win a corner on the right. Stafylidis takes but O'Shea clears the box.

  • Doyle flicks on an Andrews' long ball but Stafylidis clears on the edge of the box.

  • Greece make a rare foray forward and Salpingidis tries an effort from 28 yards on the right but it is way wide.

  • McClean creates a yard of space for himself before shooting from 25 yards out on the left but his effort is well wide.

  • Ireland take the corner on the left and win another on the left. They take short and Meyler crosses into the box towards Doyle at the far post but it just goes out for a goal kick.
