A brilliant double by Everton's Aiden McGeady gave the Republic of Ireland a 2-1 win away against Georgia in the first game of Group D Euro 2016 Qualifier.

Aidens first goal was set up by his Everton team mate James McCarthy. He beat the on rushing goalie with a sweet left foot strike.

The second came with a few minutes to go in the game and it was an absolute stunner. Seamus Coleman fired a cross into Aiden on the edge of the box. He killed the ball and turned brilliantly and hit a left foot curler into the corner of the net.The goal showed what incredible ability McGeady has got.

Darron Gibson spent the night on the bench. Martin O'Neil decided to go with Glen Whelan and Stephen Quinn alongside James McCarthy in the middle of the park.

I've always admired mcgeady as a player, his pace, skill and flair are the right attributes to change a game with a moment of magic. He just needs to learn not to give the ball away trying to get past players and make the right decisions within the team and I'm sure he will be our best winger.

This will surely prove to be a good confidence booster for our inform out and out winger! I like how well he links up with Nais and Mirallas. Expecting good things from all 3 this season and they may just be the next 3 amigos El Bob have been looking for... Arrrrrriva!

Aiden is starting to do on the pitch what Martinez says he does in training all the time. There is no doubt in my mind that he is going to be a real crowd pleaser because he is unique, a proper winge rwho can beat a man put in great crosses and score superb goals.He just need time to return to fitness and no he is hsowing what he can do. I was amazed at a few of the negative comments thrown at him on this website, similar to what Nais had before proving what a player he is, i expect Aiden and Arouna to prove them wrong too. Exciting times ahead.
