MILLWALL striker Andy Keogh dedicated his goal in Ireland's World Cup qualifier defeat to Germany to his fiancée Natalie, who recently had a miscarriage.

The 26-year-old revealed earlier this month that he had played in a friendly against Oman just days after there were problems with the pregnancy.

Keogh scored a 92nd-minute consolation in the Republic's heavy 6-1 defeat to Germany on Friday night, and briefly glanced to the heavens as teammate Shane Long went to congratulate him.

"The goal doesn’t mean anything to me, the goal is for my partner, that’s it," he told breakingnews.ie.

"It’s always nice to score, but it doesn’t really matter.

"We're very disappointed. We got beaten by a better team all-round. The lads are gutted but we need to make sure we do the business on Tuesday [against Faroe Islands].

"Germany are favourites to win the group so it's important we take points off the other teams."
