Brady celebrates his penalty
Brady’s stoppage time penalty won the game for the Republic after an incident-filled second half

The Republic of Ireland survived a huge scare as they recovered from squandering a two-goal lead to beat nine-man Armenia in a chaotic Nations League match in Dublin.

Robbie Brady’s stoppage-time penalty won the game for the Republic after a rampant second half in which Armenia scored twice in the space of three minutes and had two players sent off.

John Egan and Michael Obafemi had lifted the Republic twice before Armenia fought back from nowhere through Artak Dashyan and Eduard Spertsyan.

However, when the referee ruled that Dashyan had handled Dara O’Shea’s kick after reviewing the incident on the pitch monitor, Brady had the chance to win the game on his first international start in 18 months.

Dashyan and Hovhannes Hambartsumyan were sent off as Armenia reacted furiously to the penalty.

The Republic of Ireland would have been relegated to League C had they lost, but Armenia went down with the Dublin defeat.
