David Alaba scored deep into added time to rescue a point for Austria in the Republic of Ireland and keep his side ahead of their hosts in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group C.

It looked as if Ireland were on course for a crucial three points in Dublin after Jon Walters scored twice to overturn Martin Harnik's early goal. However, second-half pressure from Austria finally told when Alaba struck from distance.
