Republic of Ireland 2-0 Italy: Match Report

Giovanni Trapattoni tasted victory over native country Italy as the Republic of Ireland claimed a famous scalp with a 2-0 win.

Keith Andrews blasted the Republic ahead nine minutes before the break and substitute Simon Cox made sure with a second in the final minute of normal time.

Italy enjoyed the lion's share of the possession, but Ireland goalkeeper Mike Forde had few saves of note to make on his first senior international start.
