Kick-off: 8.45pm local (7.45pm BST). Daryl Murphy's first international goal earned the Republic of Ireland a lucky draw in their opening World Cup qualifier in a rain-lashed Belgrade. Jeff Hendrick's deflected effort gave the Republic the perfect start as they held out until half-time despite almost constant Serbian pressure. Filip Kostic levelled on 62 minutes and Dusan Tadic scored a controversial penalty seven minutes later. The Irish looked beaten but Murphy headed the equaliser on 81 minutes. Murphy's goal ended his long drought for the Republic as the Newcastle striker, 33, finally broke his international duck in his 24th appearance.
