  1. Goodbye

    .

    The party in Dublin is only just getting under way but it's time for us to say goodbye. What a night. The Republic of Ireland will be joining Northern Ireland, Wales and England at Euro 2016. All roads, ferries, trains and planes lead to France. See you there...

  2. IRELAND QUALIFY

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (agg 3-1)

    Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill hails the impact of his assistant Roy Keane after qualifying for Euro 2016.

    "Bringing in Roy is as big a decision as any I have made for a long time," he tells Sky Sports.

    "He's not taking too much of the accolades but he has been fantastic for myself, the backroom staff and obviously the players.

    "This is a special night, it can't be taken away from us. It's been a long road, 12 games, and when I look back it will be a very proud moment."

  3. IRELAND QUALIFY

  4. 'Delighted to be there'

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (3-1 agg)

    Former Republic of Ireland midfielder Ray Houghton tells BBC Radio 5 live: "Martin O'Neill has grown into the job and has got more involved, the same with Roy Keane. This means so much to Martin. Jack Charlton was the last manager to qualify in his first tournament and Martin has done it.

    "Since the first game it has been a lot of effort, a lot of blood, sweat and tears. We haven't got the flair players like other international sides but every player that pulls on that green shirt gives 100% and goes into battle with everyone.

    "I was in Faro when Republic of Ireland were playing Gibraltar and Scotland were playing Georgia. It was flat around the stadium as everyone was thinking Scotland would get a result. We're just delighted to be there and it looked for a spell that we wouldn't do it."

  5. IRELAND QUALIFY

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (3-1 agg)

    Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill on introducing Shane Long and James McClean early in the second half:

    "I made that double substitution because I always felt we had to win the game," he tells Sky Sports.

    "I felt Bosnia had the capability to score goals and if they did that then momentum would have shifted towards them. We had to stem that flow. The changes gave us a bit of extra strength and momentum."

  6. 'Toughest draw of all of them'

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (3-1 agg)

    More from injured Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given. He tells BBC Radio 5 live: "It was a tough draw, we had the world champions Germany, Poland and Scotland so it was the toughest draw of all of them.

    "Then we had the toughest draw in the play-offs in Bosnia, who were the highest-ranked team.

    "What a hero Jon Walters is. He deserves all the acclaim he will get tonight. He gives us that presence on the pitch and he is the first in the gym and the last out."

  7. IRELAND QUALIFY

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (3-1 agg)

  8. 'Proud'

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (agg 3-1)

    Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill on Sky Sports: "I couldn't be more proud of this team.

    "They have been absolutely fantastic right from the start when Aiden McGeady scored to win 2-1 in our opening qualifier in Georgia. I thought then that the points could be crucial. 

    "I hold the players in the highest esteem. They don't have everything, but courage and determination are things they have in abundance."

  10. IRELAND QUALIFY

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (3-1 agg)

    Republic of Ireland's goalscoring hero Jon Walters on Sky Sports: "There was a whole team of heroes out there - we got there in the end. It is the best moment of my career in any shirt - to qualify for the European Championship finals is unbelievable. You've got to take in this atmosphere, these moments don't come around in a career very often. The management team deserve lots of credit - they have been excellent throughout the campaign."

    Jon Walters
  11. 'Fantastic achievement'

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (3-1 agg)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Republic of Ireland defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    "The secret of being a top manager is that you get a little bit extra from every player and that's what Martin O'Neill does. It's a fantastic achievement.

    "Throughout the games they have had to pick Championship players and that's why this achievement is greater than before. In other Ireland qualification teams they have had four or five really top players."

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given, who missed the game through injury, has just been speaking on BBC Radio 5 live. He says: "It's phenomenal for the country, a great night.

    "The team spirit has been one of the biggest strengths and we haven't got a superstar.

    "We're all in it together and you see Robbie Keane celebrating just as much as anyone as if he was in the team. Every single player is proud to put on the jersey and you can see what it means to them."

  16. IRELAND QUALIFY

    Republic of Ireland 2-0 Bosnia (agg 3-1)

    Republic of Ireland left-back Robbie Brady on Sky Sports: "The fact we're going to the Euro 2016 is unbelievable, I'm still in shock, it's the sort of thing you dream about. Getting into the play-offs, drawing away and coming back here to qualify is what we would taken before and we did it today. Everyone involved was excellent and now we're off to France. 

    "My set pieces were dire before the one which set up Jon Walters's second but he stuck with it and he put that one away. I'm ecstatic. We never seem to do things the easy way, when things got tough, we stuck together and ground out those results.

    "Tonight is the best moment of my career."

    Ken Gorry: "Last year Darren Randolph conceded eight to Bournemouth. Now he is going to the Euro 2016. It's a funny old game. PS Jon Walters is a legend."

  18. IRELAND QUALIFY

    Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph, who started the last three qualification matches after Shay Given's injury, on Sky Sports: "It's unbelievable - I couldn't have written that script. Thankfully I got to play some games and we're through - that's all that matters."

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Republic of Ireland defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Ireland have been great because they haven't played that well in terms of football, but they managed the match superbly.Since the penalty, Bosnia's performance went down. They were arguing with the referee, the Ireland players and each other.

    "For the Irish it was great as they knew they had got them rattled. Ireland deserve it, but Bosnia beat themselves.

    "In terms of Irish managers, Martin O'Neill has probably had the least talented group of players available of anyone who has qualified. There are no superstars in this squad. Like Northern Ireland they have done absolutely brilliantly. In golfing terms, they are eight-under-par."

    "That's a very well-taken penalty - it was a while until he could take it. Bosnia are still complaining to the referee - they have been harshly done by. They need to score anyway so it doesn't change their gameplan. 

    "But their problem is that they haven't played well enough and haven't looked like scoring. Their body language doesn't look good - they feel really hard done by."

  96. GOAL - Republic of Ireland 1-0 Bosnia

    Jon Walters (penalty)

    Jon Walters beats his former Stoke City team-mate Asmir Begovic with an excellent spot kick. It might have been a harsh decision but Walters gave Begovic absolutely no chance.

    "It is a massive shout. No doubt it hit a Bosnian player on the hand, but I don't think so. First look it is quite harsh.

    "There is nothing he can do - other than put his hand down his pants."

  98. PENALTY TO IRELAND

    Republic of Ireland 0-0 Bosnia

    Harsh on Bosnia as the referee points to the penalty spot after Murphy's cross brushes Senad Lulic who is booked. No one in green in the ground is complaining. Here comes Jon Watlers...

  99. YELLOW CARD

    Republic of Ireland 0-0 Bosnia

    This is 100mph, helter-skelter stuff. Neither team is holding back when it comes to challenges and Bosnia's Emir Spahic is the first to be booked for a crunching tackle that takes out Jeff Hendrick.

    "This is not a great game. But at the moment Ireland are shading it. Down the left through Brady and Hoolahan they could have the key to unlocking this Bosnian defence."

    Republic of Ireland 0-0 Bosnia

    Impressive start by Robbie Brady. The Norwich City man delivers another inviting cross into the Bosnian penalty area but the visitors just about manage to scramble it clear before Daryl Murphy can cause any damage.

    What an atmosphere. Imagine what Ireland's fans will bring to Euro 2016 if they get through. Lots of noise for sure. Bosnia are having a decent spell of pressure but they have yet to test Darren Randolph.

    "That was a good overlap from Brady, a good ball in, just 18 inches from Jon Walters. Begovic did well to clear with his foot.

    "Both teams have got themselves in positions where they keep giving the ball away."

  105. CLOSE!

    Republic of Ireland 0-0 Bosnia

    Almost a dream start for Ireland. Robbie Brady with a clever run and low cross delivered to the feet of Jon Walters on the edge of the six-yard area but Asmir Begovic is able to block.

    Haris Medunjanin tries to pick out a white shirt inside the Ireland area with a long hoof but it's far too strong and it sails into the hands of Darren Randolph. Very little skill on show so far.

    Quote Message: I'm sure he'll be excited for about the game, but I also think we'll be ready for his qualities and try to limit him as much as possible. I will speak to some of the defenders in our team about Jon. He's a good quality player and a seasoned pro that has played in the Premier League for a very long time. His quality is there for all to see."

    "It has been so far so good for the Republic of Ireland in this tie. Now they are playing in a much bigger stadium in front of a partisan crowd. Although they must decide whether to stick or twist. For Bosnia it is simple - they must score otherwise they are out."

    Martin O'Neill's side will be greeted by a sea of green, white and orange when they walk out at the Aviva Stadium shortly before kick-off. Around 15,000 cards decked in the colours of the national flag have been produced for fans to hold up when the teams emerge from the tunnel.

  125. 'We can win the match'

    Martin O'Neill

    Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill on Sky Sports: "It has been a long tournament for us - this is our 12th game - but the players are ready."

    On his team selection: "John O'Shea is coming back from injury, he has trained over the last few days but he has not played any competitive football. Tonight, if this going to go to extra time or even penalties, then it could be a long evening. The last thing you want is someone pulling up. Shane Long offers us an option off the bench, he is confirmed as fit, has trained and kicked the ball - he's fine."

    On his side's approach: "If you have a mindset of keeping them out - I don't think that will happen. Bosnia are capable of scoring goals. But we can win the match."

  126. 'Difficult situation'

    Republic of Ireland v Bosnia (19:45 GMT)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Republic of Ireland defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    "As a nation Ireland has never sat well, both in football and rugby, with being labelled as favourites. It is a tag they hate, and their best football results have been when they are completely unfancied. 

    "We know a 0-0 draw is great for Ireland but it is a difficult situation. How do you get a 0-0? Do you sit back and try to keep Bosnia out? No, because you need goal threat. For Ireland, the scenario might keep changing."

    Well, you will be pleased to know there are no such problems in Dublin, where visibility is very good. It's a cloudy and chilly night in Ireland's capital which is gearing up for a long night of celebrations if their team qualifies.

  135. Away goals count double

    Republic of Ireland v Bosnia (19:45 GMT)

    Let's get one or two things straight before the action starts. There will be extra time if the score is 1-1 after 90 minutes. And away goals count after 90 minutes and 120 minutes if necessary. So, a 0-0 draw will be enough for the Republic of Ireland to qualify. Bore draw, anyone?

  136. One Ireland change

    Republic of Ireland v Bosnia (19:45 GMT)

    So, one change to the Ireland line-up that started in Zenica on Friday, with Stoke City forward Jon Walters returning from suspension. Stephen Ward makes way.

    Republic of Ireland XI: Randolph, Coleman, Keogh, Clark, Brady, Whelan, McCarthy, Hendrick, Hoolahan, Walters, Murphy. Subs: Forde, Wilson, O'Shea, McGeady, Long, Keane, McClean, Christie, Ward, Gibson, Arter, Henderson.

    There's three changes for Bosnia. Defender Ognjen Vranjes in for the injured Mensur Mujdza. Defender Sead Kolasinac and midfielder Haris Medunjanin also return to the side.

    Bosnia-Herzegovina XI: Begovic, Vranjes, Zukanovic, Spahic, Kolasinac, Medunjanin, Cocalic, Visca, Pjanic, Lulic, Dzeko. Subs: Sehic, Bicakcic, Besic, Ibisevic, Hodzic, Susic, Sunjic, Djuric, Hajrovic, Hadzic, Salihovic, Buric.

    Republic of Ireland v Bosnia (19:45 GMT)

    Northern Ireland are there. So too England and Wales. Will the Republic of Ireland also be travelling to France for next summer's European Championship?

    A 1-1 first leg draw in Zenica on Friday has left them in the driving seat. With away goals counting double, a goalless draw in Ireland's capital will be enough to see them through tonight. 

    Ireland's play-off history is shrouded in heartache. They missed out on Euro 96 and Euro 2000 in the play-offs as well as the 1998 and 2010 World Cups. Can they avoid more pain and rejection to join their neighbours in France next summer?

    All that blood and sweat shed over the last 14 months now boils down to what happens on a November Monday evening in Dublin. One last push is required, one last hurdle needs to be negotiated. If the Republic of Ireland are to appear at Euro 2016 they need to see off Bosnia-Herzegovina.

    It's now or never for Martin O'Neill's side.
