PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Republic of Ireland vs Poland 29/03/2015
The Aviva Stadium is consumed by smoke and fire in the build up to the Republic of Ireland’s crucial Euro 2016 qualifier with Poland.
In a game labelled a ‘home’ fixture for the Irish, it was the Polish, numbering well into the tens of thousands, who created the early noise.
Despite the pyrotechnics, there was a genuine sense of unity and understanding amongst fans who in the main hail from the same country.
On the pitch it became an absorbing, and potentially pivotal game for both sides with Shane Long’s last minute equaliser cancelling out Peszko’s first half strike to leave both sides with a share of the spoils.
