Twitter reacts to a disappointing result in Georgia

This pair of results put pressure on the Boys in Green as the mid-week clash with Serbia is now a must-win.

Desperate defending kept the home side at bay for half an hour but then a similar moment of indecision from the Ireland goalkeeper set in motion a passage of play that resulted in the equalising goal.

From then on Martin O'Neill's side were mostly on the back foot as they battled to keep a share of the spoils.

It is a feature of Ireland's game that has become a risky pattern which would have resulted in a loss against some of the bigger teams in the group.

"We gave possession away too cheaply and allowed them dominate". The midfield was disjointed as was the attack.

Boats carrying fleeing Rohingya sink in Bangladesh; 26 dead
Bangladesh has recently stopped thousands of Rohingyas on the border, saying it is no longer capable of hosting the refugees. Eighteen bodies washed ashore in Bangladesh yesterday, a border official said, lifting the toll over the last two days to 41.

He had three strikers - Shane Long, Jonathan Walters and Daryl Murphy - and wingers James McClean and Aiden McGeady on the pitch for a late onslaught during which McGeady, who scored a last-gasp victor at the same stadium three years ago, fired over from close range in stoppage time.

After Ireland's goal, they defended as if it was the 90th minute for the remainder of the game. They were by far better side.

In the team Georgia, the player Giorgi Loria is not in the game and he will be replaced either by Giorgi Makaridze or Nukri Revishvili and the player Nika Kacharava will also be missing in the team as he was suffered from Virus.

It was hard to pick out the leaders in today's game with the likes of Jon Walters, Glenn Whelan and Robbie Brady all anonymous. This two teams had met totally eight times and Republic of Ireland won all the matches and Georgia didn't even win a single match against Ireland. McClean did, however, show the drive and determination along with Aiden McGeady in the last quarter but Ireland could make nothing of it, this should have been encouraged when Ireland were ahead.

The visitors improved after the break and James McClean and substitute Aiden McGeady both had late chances to win it as Vladimir Weiss' men exhausted, but justice would hardly have been served had either of them done so.

NWS: TS Harvey's Houston rainfall breaks U.S. record

Ireland will not want to go to Cardiff needing to beat Gareth Bale's Wales and must take advantage of a huge home tie. We need a lot of thinking about what went wrong, and thankfully we have a game so soon to put things right.

Pressed on whether he gets frustrated by the team's style, Kerr added: "I think it frustrates a lot of people who like to see the game played with maybe a slightly better mix but it's been very effective for Martin O'Neill". It was a different story to three years ago, when a late McGeady goal at the same stadium secured three points.

McClean had a chance in the 87th minute to seal the victory, thanks to Long's endeavours on the left, but there was to be no repeat of his Vienna heroics as the keeper redeemed himself to a certain degree, getting out quickly to narrow the angle and block the effort.

Seven-cap Arter, replaced by Aiden McGeady after 62 minutes, is not shy about saying that worldwide football is still a learning curve.
