Rep of Ireland 1 Gibraltor 0 : Denmark 5 Georgia 1

Republic of Ireland moved five points clear at the top of Group D in their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a labored 2-0 win against Gibraltar.

Joseph Chipolina’s own goal was all that separated the sides until Robbie Brady’s thumping injury-time header.

Brady’s late goal added some gloss to what was another frustrating night for Mick McCarthy’s side against Gibraltar.

Denmark’s 5-1 defeat of Georgia allowed the Irish to extend their pool lead but with more difficult games remaining.

McCarthy’s side must play both of their matches against top seeds Switzerland in the autumn and will complete their European Championship qualifying campaign at home to Denmark on 18 November.
