PICTURES: Ireland beat World Champions Germany in Dublin

IRELAND produced a remarkable 1-0 win over World Champions Germany at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Thursday night, sparking jubilant scenes both inside and outside the ground.

Shane Long’s 70th-minute winner was enough to secure Martin O’Neill’s men a place in the play-offs to qualify for next summer’s European Championships in France at the very least.

A win or a high-scoring draw in Poland on Sunday night would secure automatic qualification for the tournament instead, but for now, bask in the glory of one of Ireland’s finest ever victories with these glorious images of the historic occasion.
