The Republic of Ireland's horrendous start to World Cup qualifying continued as the Boys in Green suffered a humiliating 1-0 home loss to Luxembourg.
The hosts have lost both of their games so far in qualification for the World Cup and were stung by a late Gerson Rodrigues goal at the Aviva Stadium as they sought a winner of their own.
Elsewhere, Romelu Lukaku's second-half strike helped Belgium salvage a 1-1 draw against the Czech Republic on Saturday in an entertaining World Cup qualifier in which both sides were denied by the woodwork a number of times.

Lukas Provod gave the home side the lead with his first international goal just after the break when he gathered the ball in space and sent a long-range, right-footed strike past Belgium keeper Thibaut Courtois.
But Lukaku levelled in the 60th minute when he turned defender Ondrej Celustka and sent a shot that deflected off the keeper's right leg into the net.
Both sides continued to attack in search of a winner with Kevin De Bruyne's shot from the edge of the box hitting the woodwork in the 70th minute and Czech defender Jan Boril doing the same in the 84th.
