Given could do nothing to stop an outstanding strike from Slawomir Peszko which gave Poland an early lead which stunned the Aviva.However, Ireland dominated the second-half and played some brilliant football and fully deserved a point.Seamus Coleman was blasted by RTE pundit Eamon Dunphy at half-time who said Coleman’s effort was non-existent.However, the controversial pundit conceded afterwards that Coleman was excellent in the second-half and improved hugely.
