Brady likely to miss Moldova match


Ireland manager Martin O'Neill says Robbie Brady is likely to miss Sunday's World Cup Group D qualifier with Moldova under concussion protocols.

The Norwich City midfielder required oxygen after a clash of heads with Georgia defender Soloman Kvirkvelia in the second half of Ireland’s 1-0 win over Vladimir Weiss' side at Lansdowne Road, and has since been taken to hospital in Dublin.

However, there was better news concerning Shane Long, who limped off in injury time but is expected to be fit for the match in Chisinau against Igor Dobrovolski's side.

"I have to check that but I would say that he wouldn't be right," he said.

"Shane might be OK, but Robbie was taken out cold. He has come back again, and the doctors are pleased with him.

"He passed me when he was carried off but I have not been able to see him since. He’s as brave as a lion, great courage obviously and a fine player.

"I hope he is alright, he was concussed, the doctor and the physios got him round and he was conscious when he came past me."

O'Neill admits that Ireland were second best in the opening 45 minutes, and feels his players allowed the Georgia midfield too much time on the ball.

"We’re delighted with the win and obviously we can play better," O’Neill told RTE Sport.

"I think the players have plenty of confidence, but when you don’t start well and allow the opposition on your own pitch too much time on the ball it takes a while to get back on track. It took us most of the first 45 minutes to do that.

"We pressed. First of all you have to try to press, then you have to try get close enough to the opposition when you do press and we weren’t doing that."
