Poland handed Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni he first taste of defeat after a dramatic 3-2 defeat at Croke Park.

The visitors looked to be cruising to victory after skipper Mariusz Lewandowski and substitute Roger Guerreiro had given them a 2-0 lead two minutes into the second half.

But Ireland belatedly launched a fightback with substitutes Stephen Hunt from the penalty spot and Keith Andrews struck either side of Robert Lewandowski's effort inside a remarkable final two minutes.
