It's one year to the day since Wes Hoolahan sent Irish fans wild with a sumptuous volley that looked like it had got Ireland's Euro 2016 campaign off to a dream start.

 

The Norwich City man opened the scoringtwo minutes into the second half as he stepped into a pocket of space inside the box and brilliantly turned home Seamus Coleman's cross.

 

An own goal from Ciaran Clark later in the half ensured both teams took a point from their opening encounter, although Ireland were understandably the more disappointed given they'd taken the lead.
