Whether it’s the ‘bah’ or the description of Darren Randolph’s Pirlo-esque pass to Shane Long as a ‘langer ball’, this gets sweeter with each listen.

As the nation of Ireland was leaping around their front rooms whilst listening to George Hamilton try to describe Long’s crackerjack finish, the Germans were already analysing what went wrong.

The goal, which secured Ireland a 1-0 win, will go down in our footballing history as one of our finest.
