Euro 2016 Qualifiers - Appearances Made and Goal Scorers

Ireland's first match in the Euro 2016 qualifiers was in Tblisi against Georgia. Martin O'Neill won his first competitive match as Republic of Ireland manager 2-1. The only surprise in his selection was that he gave Hull City's Stephen Quinn his competitive debut.

Irish Player Appearances in Euro 2016 Qualifiers

Despite the fact that Shay Given had come out of international retirement Manager Martin O'Neill retained Milwall's David Forde between the sticks against Georgia. Interestingly, and partly due to injuries, manager O'Neill used 20 different players in his first two group matches against Georgia and Gibraltar.

Ireland's record goal scorer Robbie Keane recorded his third international hat trick against Gibraltar in the second qualifier at the Aviva Stadium. (The capacity of the Aviva is 20,000 greater than the population of the tiny British overseas territory.) The 7-0 victory over the Gibraltarians was Ireland's largest victory in over 30 years.

On 14th October 2014 John O'Shea Marked his 100th appearance in the green of the Republic of Ireland with an injury time goal that earned an away point for Martin O'Neill's side against world champions Germany.

The result of the group came on the 8th October 2015 in the Aviva Stadium when a goal from Shane Long gave Ireland a 1-0 win over the World Champions, Germany. The Germans managed to take just a single point from the Irish in the two group matches.

A defeat to Poland in the final group match consigned Ireland to the third place play-off matches. The following players have appeared for the Republic of Ireland during the 2016 Euro qualification campaign matches and the play-off matches against Bosnia and Herzegovina. Ireland won the play-off tie by a 3-1 aggregate score line.
