WATCH: Fan footage captures crowd reaction to Long’s late goal

A fan in the Aviva Stadium captured the wild celebrations in the stands when Shane Long scored in injury time to keep the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2016 qualification hopes alive.

Ireland were losing 1-0 to Poland - a result which would have left Martin O’Neill’s side six points adrift of the top of the table in their group.

But then up popped Long, a second-half substitute, to equalise from a corner in the 91st minute.

Cue an outpouring of joy from Ireland fans in the stand - come on you boys in green!
