The FAI have confirmed that Robbie Brady is conscious and talking to medical staff after he was stretchered off during Ireland's unconvincing 1-0 win over Georgia at the Aviva Stadium.

He suffered a nasty clash of heads during the second-half and after lengthy treatment was removed from the field of play on 80 minutes to be replaced by Glenn Whelan. 

The Norwich midfielder is now a serious doubt for Sunday's trip to Moldova, while Jeff Hendrick will also miss that game after picking up a yellow card in the closing stages of tonight's game.

The FAI thanked fans for their messages to Brady as they issued an update on his condition.
