LAST WORD. Ben has been back in touch to say: 'Second time in a week Ireland has let a win slip away in the stoppage time. Heartbreaking.' Too true Ben but keep your chin up, you're still in with a good chance of qualifying.
FULL TIME. Austria grab a point in Dublin. A precious two points are dropped by Ireland who are in fourth behind Germany, level on points with Austria and Sweden. Thanks for your views tonight, stay with us for reaction.

Wilson concedes a free-kick near the halfway line on the right. Austria take but are forced all the way back to their own keeper.
McClean shoots at goal from the free-kick but it just goes into the side-netting.
Ben says: 'Brilliant end to the half for the Irish! They could use more score in the 2nd half to get their goal difference in the black, and this qualifying group may look rather different after tonight.' Let's hope so Ben!! Any more views? Send them to email@example.com
