The Republic of Ireland rebounded from last Friday's record 6-1 home defeat by Germany by claiming a morale-boosting 4-1 win over the Faroe Islands to get their FIFA World Cup qualification bid back on track.

The pressure eased on coach Giovanni Trapattoni with the Group C victory in Torshavn where Marc Wilson, Jonathan Walters and Darren O'Dea all scored, with Ireland's other goal coming when Pól Jóhannus Justinussen put the ball into his own net.
