While Robbie Brady is elated with his game-winner against Italy, he is not underplaying the work ahead for Ireland.

Roy Keane and Shane Long are disappointed about the number of tickets Republic of Ireland have been allocated for their Euro 2016 round of 16 game against France in Lyon on Sunday night.
