Group Stage

Ireland vs Cameroon
With all the media coverage of the Roy Keane affair circulating around the world, it was time for Ireland to let their their football do the talking.

Germany vs Ireland
Germany paid the price for thinking the game was already won and suffering a lack of concentration at the back, as Robbie Keane slipped through Linke and Ramelow to smash a drive past Ollie Kahn's left ear.

Saudi Arabia vs Ireland
The boys in green stay on course to earn a place in the Second Round.
