Ireland manager Martin O’Neill says his team could not have given anymore in last night’s 1-0 win over Germany at the Aviva. Shane Long’s goal midway through the second half made the difference. The win means victory in Poland on Sunday would ensure automatic qualification for Euro 2016 while a 2-all draw will also be sufficient. At worst Ireland have earned a play-off spot.
