MILLWALL striker Andy Keogh scored a stoppage-time consolation for the Republic of Ireland in their heavy 6-1 defeat to Germany on Friday evening.

Keogh, who started the game on the bench but was introduced as a 69th-minute substitute, headed in Robbie Brady's corner at the far post to notch his first ever goal in a competitive international fixture.

Lions keeper David Forde was an unused substitute at the Aviva Stadium but could feature against the Faroe Islands next week after incumbent stopper Keiren Westwood let in six against the Germans.

Meanwhile, loan striker Chris Wood is set to start for New Zealand in a World Cup qualifier in Tahiti in the early hours of Saturday morning.
