IRELAND MEET GEORGIA in Dublin on 7 September, and on tonight’s evidence, the Boys in Green probably won’t be too worried about the game.

The Georgians lost 2-1 at home in a friendly against Ukraine, with Dynamo Kyiv striker Artem Kravets taking advantage of some comical defending to score the opening goal.

The striker capitalised after a Georgian defender’s all-too-casual backpass went woefully astray. deflecting into Kravets’ path via the post, and the player couldn’t hide his amusement after scoring with a simple finish.

Meanwhile, in tonight’s other friendlies, Estonia won 2-0 away against Finland, and Luxembourg drew 0-0 with Moldova.
