Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni feels that his side must stay "positive" following their draw with Austria.

Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni believes that his side must stay positive following their 2-2 draw with Austria.

A Jonathan Walters brace looked to have given Ireland all three points but David Alaba struck an injury-time equaliser to earn his side a share of the spoils.

Trapattoni told Sky Sports News: "Think how disappointed the players are. We must give them morale and belief and support. We must be positive.

"We have three or four young players and some players who were playing only their second or third game.We must believe. I said yesterday we believe in this new revolution. We have to allow these young players to grow in confidence - why not?"

The result leaves Trapattoni's side fourth in Group C after five qualifying games.
