Follow all the action from the nights Euro 2016 qualifying matchesScotland v Republic of Ireland! Live with Barry Glendenning NOWLive scoreboard! Follow all of the goals and games as they happenAnd email or tweet @JacobSteinberg 8.34pm GMT Tosics goal is the difference. 8.34pm GMT It sounds like a classic. 8.33pm GMT Helder Postiga. 8.33pm GMT Yes, really. 8.32pm GMT Deadlock. 8.32pm GMT Northern Ireland have survived a few scares but they have gone close to taking the lead on a couple of occasions on the break. 8.31pm GMT Lafferty turns the hapless Chiriches, who was too tight, but instead of crossing to a team-mate in the middle, his shot is saved at the near post. Corner to Northern Ireland. It comes to nothing. 8.29pm GMT Pepe has just been booked. It was a ludicrous foul. 8.27pm GMT How is it possible that Helder Postiga is still up front for Portugal? Its a national disgrace. 8.25pm GMT No way! 8.24pm GMT A Romania goal, you feel, is on the way. Northern Ireland need half-time. 8.20pm GMT Northern Ireland are increasingly under the cosh. They need to get above the cosh. Okay Jacob, Ill humor you. If I had to guess, I would say that Barry is eating a meatball grinder, while your sandwich of choice is likely a Bahn Mi, says Daniel Schulwolf. As for me, I generally vacillate between the Bahn Mi and the classic Italian, although as a resident of Boston I feel obligated to put a good word in for the Lobstah Roll.That is not what Barry was eating. 8.19pm GMT Romania should lead. Sanmartean went on a brilliant run through the Northern Irish defence, embarrassing McAuley with a lovely nutmeg, but instead of shooting past Carroll, he decided to be elaborate and roll it across to Stancu, who was unable to bundle it in! 8.15pm GMT Portugal dont appear to be doing much against Armenia. Cristiano Ronaldo must hate his team-mates. 8.14pm GMT I think Germany are going to win. 8.13pm GMT Aberystwyth are in the pool with Kazakhstan? or Moldova? says Serge. Not the one from Kasabian. I forgot...I think theyre in Qatars group. 8.10pm GMT Germany are still only winning 1-0. Useless. 8.07pm GMT GOAL! The New Saints FC 1 (Greg Draper 17) Aberystwyth 0. 8.06pm GMT Is anybody out there? Oh. 8.06pm GMT Nicklas Bendtner slashes wide for Denmark. This is not necessarily news. 8.04pm GMT Tanasae volleys against the Northern Ireland bar! The rebound comes to Chipciu and he heads straight at Carroll. 8.03pm GMT Northern Ireland spring forward on the counter-attack and when Lafferty plays Brunt in, his shot from the left goes inches past the far post! 8.00pm GMT Germany are raining shots on the Gibraltar goal. Meanwhile Chiriches goes close for Romania but his overhead kick is straight at Carrolll. 7.58pm GMT The crowd goes wild! 7.57pm GMT The dream dies. Thomas Muller volleys home after a blunder by the Gibraltar goalkeeper, who failed to deal with a cross from Mustafi. He let it bounce against his near post and it came to Muller, who wasnt about to miss from eight yards out. 7.56pm GMT Northern Ireland are looking mostly comfortable so far. Carroll hasnt had much to do, although Romania have seen most of the ball. 7.54pm GMT Ireland had already scored by now against Gibraltar. Maybe Germany really are finished. 7.52pm GMT Roy Carroll is rubbing his head after being caught by a stray arm from Chipciu. The Northern Ireland goalkeeper isnt happy but he doesnt need any treatment, though. 7.51pm GMT I dont think Gibraltar have been in the Germany half yet. But its still 0-0! The shock is on the cards! 7.49pm GMT Serbia, of course, are playing in an empty stadium against Denmark. How is that going to affect them? It certainly wont be as intimidating for the Danes. 7.47pm GMT Germany still arent winning. What a load of rubbish. Two minutes in and Sami Khedira has even been tackled by a Gibraltar player. 7.45pm GMT Theyre playing football! Germany arent winning yet. 7.40pm GMT Teams are walking on to pitches. Theyll be playing football soon! 7.38pm GMT To my left, Barry Glendenning is eating a sandwich. Why dont you email him here with guesses about what sandwich he is eating? 7.26pm GMT Serbia: Stojkovic, Ivanovic, Bisevac, Stefan Mitrovic, Dusko Tosic, Zoran Tosic, Gudelj, Matic, Tadic, Djuricic, Lazovic.

And welcome to live coverage of how many goals are Germany going to score against Gibraltar? Five? Six? Seven? Eight? Nine? Ten? Eleven? Twelve? Thirteen? Fourteen? Fifteen? Sixteen? Eighteen? Nineteen? Twenty? I could go on. You get the picture. Gibraltar arent very good. Theyre playing the world champions. A team packed with players who - get this - have other jobs are going to play the world champions. I know. But wait! Germany drew with the Republic of Ireland in their last match! Its all over! Theyre officially rubbish! Could this be the evening when Gibraltar finally break their duck and win a game of international football? Scroll down for the answer! Continue reading...
