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.
Robbie Brady is conscious in the dressing room. The medical team are taking every precaution possible. Thank you for your messages. #COYBIG— FAIreland (@FAIreland) October 6, 2016
