Germany duly claimed their place at next summer´s Euro 2008 finals, leaving the Republic of Ireland requiring the mother of all mathematical miracles to join them as the sides battled out a goalless stalemate.

For only the second time in nine Group D qualifying matches the Germans dropped points, and on another night the scoreline would have been a respectable one from an Irish point of view.

But manager Steve Staunton´s side came into the game at Dublin´s Croke Park needing a victory, and now they are staring grimly at the prospect of missing out on playing at a major tournament for the third successive occasion.
