Georgia pull level in their Euro 2016 qualifier against the Republic of Ireland at half time after Aiden McGeady's opener.
Tornike Okriashvili's long-range effort has brought Georgia level with the Republic of Ireland at half time of their opening Euro 2016 qualifier in Tbilisi this evening.
After a tentative opening 20 minutes, it was hosts Georgia who had the first real chance when Nikoloz Gelashvili darted in from the right wing and fired just wide.

Moments later, Ireland were in front with the first goal of Euro 2016 qualifying from any side as Everton's Aiden McGeady received a pass from Toffees teammate James McCarthy before slotting home.
Georgia equalised in the 38th minute when Okriashvili, of Belgian side Genk, twisted and turned 25 yards out before dipping a shot just under the crossbar past the helpless David Forde.
