Aiden McGeady was the hero for the Republic of Ireland in the Euro 2016 qualification contest against Georgia. The 28-year-old notched the game-opening goal in the 23rd minute. After the game was tied up for 52 minutes, the Everton man spectacularly struck in the 90th minute to give his country the 2-1 victory.
Manager Martin O’Neill had nothing but praise for the midfielder’s excellent performance that was highlighted by the brace.
“He was the only player on the field that was scoring the goal. He really is a fantastic talent,” O’Neill said, per Sky Sports.
“He probably thinks at this age he should have been up there with the very finest players. He has that talent and he showed that tonight.”
