Gallery: Ireland v Austria in World Cup Qualifying Group D

A late Jonathan Walters goal gave the Republic of Ireland an important point in their World Cup qualifier against Austria in Dublin yesterday.

Alwyn Robinson was at the Aviva Stadium for Back Page Football and he captured the action as Martin O’Neill’s side continued its push for a place at the finals in Russia.

In truth, Ireland could have taken all three points but Shane Duffy had a goal disallowed for a foul late on.

An under-strength Austrian side went ahead just after the half hour when Martin Hinteregger beat Darren Randolph in the Irish goal, and for long periods it looked as though it would finish that way.

However, Walters came to the rescue as he shrugged off a defender and hammered the ball home from just inside the penalty area.
