A goal from Robbie Brady gave Ireland a famous win over Italy which will see them progress to the knockout stages of the tournament. 

They struggled to break down a resolute Italian defence before an 84th minute goal found the run of Robbie Brady, as he nodded past Salvatore Sirigu in goal. 

Despite the changes made to the Italian side by manager Antonio Conte, the late goal brought scenes of pure joy and elation for the players on the field and the fans in the stands.
