Shay Given warns Republic of Ireland against complacency

Veteran goalkeeper Shay Given warns his Republic of Ireland teammates not to take Georgia lightly.

Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given has insisted that his side have to guard against complacency as they prepare to face Georgia at the Aviva Stadium on Monday.

The 39-year-old kept a clean sheet as Ireland beat Gibraltar 4-0 to leave Martin O'Neill's side in third place in Euro 2016 qualifying Group D.

Georgia, meanwhile, beat Scotland 1-0 to put a dent in the qualification hopes of Gordon Strachan's team.

"We wanted them to win [against Scotland], but the thing is they'll be coming to Dublin with confidence and belief," Given told reporters.

"But we will have plenty of confidence as well after the win [over Gibraltar]. We could have had more goals as well. We played some good stuff, created some good chances, but it will be a different game.

"Obviously Georgia are a better team than the guys [Gibraltar], so it will be a tougher game, but we are at home and we need to win the game."

Elsewhere, Germany moved to the top of Group D with a 3-1 win over Poland in Frankfurt.
