Kick-off: 7.45pm BST. Seamus Coleman's second-half goal sealed a narrow 1-0 win for Republic of Ireland over Georgia in their 2018 World Cup Qualifier on Thursday night. The hosts, who were second best in the first-half at the Aviva Stadium, improved after the break and went ahead when Coleman bundled in his first goal for his country. Georgia had twice hit the woodwork in the opening 45 minutes but faded in the second half, and James McClean almost added further gloss for Republic of Ireland when he hit the crossbar in stoppage time.
