Robinson first player to score hat-trick for Rep. Ireland since Robbie Keane

Soccer

Callum Robinson scored a hat-trick as the Republic of Ireland thrashed Qatar 4-0 in a friendly last night.

The West Brom forward is the first player to score three times in a game for Ireland since Robbie Keane.

Robinson says he's honoured:

Shane Duffy scored the other goal as Stephen Kenny's team secured a comfortable win over next year's World Cup hosts.

=

Albania's World Cup qualifier against Poland was temporarily suspended after home supporters threw objects at opposition players celebrating the opening goal.

The Polish team was bombarded with drink bottles from the stands, after taking what proved to be a match winning 1-0 lead in Tirana.

Both teams left the pitch for over 20 minutes following the incident before the game was played to a conclusion.

=

Serbia continue to lead Ireland's group after a 3-1 home win against Azerbaijan.

While Cristiano Ronaldo scored three goals in Portugal's 5-0 hammering of Luxembourg.

=

Northern Ireland's slim hopes of World Cup qualification were ended last night.

Ian Baraclough's side took the lead against Bulgaria in Sofia, but conceded twice in the second half of a 2-1 defeat.

They're now 9 points behind second placed Switzerland, with just two group games left to play - putting a play-off place out of reach.

=

Scotland need just one more win from their final two qualifying games to secure a play-off place.

Lyndon Dykes scored a dramatic late winner to claim the 1-0 win in the Faroe Islands.

=

England's qualifying campaign hit an unexpected snag last night - after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Hungary at Wembley.

Manager Gareth Southgate called the result a "big disappointment" after his side came from behind to rescue a point.

England remain 3 points clear at the top of their group with two games remaining.

Gaelic Games

Meath GAA chairman John Kavanagh has called for "unity" after Andy McEntee won a vote to remain as their senior football manager.

The County Board Executive had recommended not retaining McEntee for a sixth year but 46 of 73 clubs voted against that proposal last night.

Kavanagh says it's now time for the Royal County to park divisions and to move forward under McEntee.

Meanwhile the Royals' senior hurling manager Nick Weir has added former Clare and Wexford coach Seoirse Bulfin to his backroom team.

Rugby

Bundee Aki looks set to come straight into the Connacht team for their derby with Munster in the United Rugby Championship this weekend.

The Ireland centre has returned to training following an extended break after touring with the Lions this summer.

Connacht senior coach Pete Wilkins says it's "extremely important" to have Aki back for Saturday's trip to Thomond Park.

Golf

New rules will give golf competitions the right to limit the length of clubs being used from next year.

Other than a putter, clubs can currently be a maximum of 48 inches - with this soon to be limited to 46 inches.

It's part of a plan to limit the distance travelled by balls in the modern game.

Six time major winner Phil Mickelson previously described the proposals as "pathetic".

Racing

There’s a seven-race card at Punchestown today, with the first off at 1.15pm.
