DUBLIN AND MAYO could not be separated after a tense, entertaining and error-strewn All-Ireland SFC final earlier today.

The two sides will meet again at Croke Park on Saturday week after Cillian O’Connor’s last-gasp point rescued Mayo in the game’s dying moments.

On RTÉ’s The Sunday Game, panelists Ciarán Whelan, Dessie Dolan and Tomás Ó Sé selected John Small, Brian Fenton and Donal Vaughan as the three standouts from today’s clash.

In the end, they chose 22-year-old Small as the game’s best player. The Dublin star kicked a point and was hailed for doing “everything right” as his side came desperately close to claiming another All-Ireland title.

Do you agree with the selection or would you have included a different nominee? Have your say below.
