90' + 1'

FULL TIME!

That's it, a fantastic 3-0 win for an Ireland side that always looked in control.

90'
Great save from Sean McDermott there, he had to be at full stretch to stop Veltman scoring.

87'
Another Anthony Forde free in, this time headed out for a corner by Veltman.

85'
A fairly good turnout here today for a daytime kickoff. One stand in Tallaght is mostly full. Among the spectators are Cork City boss Tommy Dunne and Ireland women's international Stephanie Roche.

82'
Ireland are always on the lookout for a counter-attack. The Dutch, maenwhile, have looked vulnerable all game.

78'
Another chance for Ireland. Frankie Sutherland won the ball and slipped Sean Murray through, but his shot was poor.

76'
Jesper Drost had a clear shot on the Irish goal there, but it bobbled harmlessly into the arms of Sean McDermott.

73'
A real chance for Joel Veltman - he volleyed spectacularly inside the Irish box. Wide, though.

72'
This Dutch team will play in a Euro 2013 group of death, also featuring Spain, Germany and Russia. They lost just once in qualifying- a 2-1 loss in Scotland.

69'
Anthony Forde has really been very, very impressive today. Ireland's main creative outlet, and he's now out of position as a striker.

64'

Substitution

Another Irish sub- Cian Bolger replaces Callum Reilly.

57'

PENALTY SCORED!

Anthony Forde! Forde caps a terrific performance by scoring from the spot.

56'

Substitution

Chris Forrester replaces the injured Aiden O'Brien.

54'
Aiden O'Brien has taken a bit of a knock after falling awkwardly when he went up for a high cross with Dutch keeper Hobie Verhulst. He seems OK now though.

52'
A bit of danger there as a Dutch attack leads to a Stanley Elbers snapshot, Well over though from outside the box.

46'

Substitution

Sean McDermott replaces Aaron McCarey, Samir Carruthers is off for Frankie Sutherland, Derrick Williams off for Anthony O'Connor, Sean McGinty off for Carl McHugh; Hobie Verhulst on for Stefan van der Lei, Stefano Denswil for Ted van de Pavert, Peter van Ooijen on for NIck Bakker, Jody Lukoki on for Luciano Slagveer.

46'

Second Half

We're back on, and there's been a shedload of subs.

45'

Half Time

Half time.

44'
Coming up to half time here, Noel King should be delighted with this performance.

39'
Ireland have been very good so far, particularly in attack. Remember- this is Aiden O'Brien's debut.

37'
Aiden O'Brien is having a stormer here. An Anthony Forde free was flicked on by Shane Duffy and finished close to goal by the Millwall youngster.

37'

GOAL!

O'Brien again!

36'

Substitution

Kane Ferdinand's debut is cut short through injury - John O'Sullivan replaces him.

33'
This Dutch team are no pushovers- they're made Euro Euro 2013 by topping their qualifying group - so for Ireland to get a result here would be very impressive.

27'
Samir Carruthesr of Aston Villa almost capped a lovely exchange with Aiden O'Brien with a goal, but his shot wasn't strong enough. Too easy for Stefan van der Lei to save.

25'
Aiden O'Brien was slipped through on goal deftly by Carruthers there - he was marginally offside though.

24'
Stanley Elbers almost scored from a corner there- a powerful drilled delivery claimed by McCarey.

22'
Aiden O'Brien almost had another there. He capitalised on a botched clearance and found himself clear on goal. But his shot let him down as he dragged it wide.

20'
Stanley Elbers curled a shot just wide there- but was offside anyway.

13'
Ireland are on the attack again- Samir Carruthers won a free a few yards outside the Dutch box. Anthony Forde put it in and it almost found someone in front of goal.

13'
Ireland are on the attack again- Samir Carruthers won a free a few yards outside the Dutch box. Anthony Forde put it in and it almost found someone in front of goal.

10'
Millwall's Aiden O'Brien taps in after Anthony Forde's cross eluded every Dutch defender. A real conter-attacking goal - Forde got on the end of a long clearance from the Irish defence.

10'

GOAL!

Aiden O'Brien gives Ireland the lead!

5'
Alex Schalk, Dutch captain, hits the post. It took a deflection, but close nonetheless.

3'
Almost an OG there- Derrick Williams got up to head away a cross and but for the quick reaction of Aaron McCarey would have scored in his own goal.

2'
Aiden O'Brien latched on to an upfield ball there and held it up, forcing a corner. It was cleared away though.

1'
