  • Full time here at the Aviva Stadium. It finished 2-1 to Turkey, who managed to avoid a late Irish equaliser. Ireland were guilty of poor finishing throughout and will be looking to avoid a similar display during their Euro 2016 qualifiers. Thanks for joining!

    90+3
  • Meyler puts in a first-class tackle to block Ozyakup but the ball falls to Odin who fires in a low shot - but Elliot manages to smother the attempt.

    90+1
  • There will be three minutes of added on time.

    90
  • Walters delivers a long ball into the box and it eventually falls to Meyler, but he can't get the ball out from under his feet and Turkey eventually clear the ball.

    89
  • Ireland continue to press but with a number of Turkish defenders coming off the bench, it's looking increasingly difficult for O'Neill's side to grab that equaliser.

    86
  • Wonderful play from McClean as he skips past numerous challenges on the right-hand side and drills in a ball towards Murphy, whose header is goalbound but straight down the throat of Onur. Good chance for the Ipswich man.

    84
  • Ireland get a freekick and McClean delivers it into the heart of the Turkish box - but Terim's side defend it superbly and the danger is averted for now.

    84
  • Nuri Sahin comes off for Ishak Dogan

    83
  • Gokhan Gonul booked for time-wasting.

    82
  • Glenn Whelan comes off for Stephen Quinn

    80
  • Mevlut Erdinc comes off for Mustafa Pektemek

    80
  • The crowd are roaring on Ireland as they seek an equaliser. What a finale we have in store!

    79
  • It's Jon Walters who has scored! The Stoke man chested a long ball into the Turkish area and after taking it past Toprak, Walters curled in a wonderful finish to set up an intriguing final 13 minutes. It's Ireland 1-2 Turkey!

    77
  • GOAL FOR REPUBLIC OF IRELAND!

    77
  • The substitutes combine superbly as Ozyakup plays a superbly disguised ball towards Tarik Camdal who fired it high into Elliot's net to double Turkey's lead. It's Ireland 0-2 Turkey.

    75
  • GOAL FOR TURKEY!

    75
  • Boos around the stadium as Ireland are denied another penalty. Hoolahan capitalises on poor Toprak defending and says the defender pushed him over - replays show it would have been soft.

    74
  • Erdinc picks the ball up around the Irish area and ignores Erkin's dangerous run on goal and opts to swivel between numerous defenders. It's eventually cleared and his teammate is not too happy...

    73
  • Nice link up play from Ireland on the edge of the Turkey area gives Hoolahan the opportunity to thread through Walters, but unfortunately for him - he misplaces his pass and Turkey clear.

    71
  • The impressive Ahmet Ilhan comes off for Tarik Camdal
