Jon Walters: Ireland hero says reaching finals is 'unbelievable'

Republic of Ireland forward Jon Walters says qualifying for Euro 2016 is an "unbelievable" achievement.

The Stoke City player scored both goals in a 2-0 play-off win over Bosnia-Herzegovina in Dublin to secure a place in the finals.

He netted a penalty before doubling the lead in the second half as the Republic won 3-1 on aggregate.

Walters, 32, says he was on antibiotics for an ear infection in the build-up to the second leg in Dublin.
