Republic of Ireland supporters have hailed the performance of James McCarthy against Germany in Euro 2016 qualifying on Thursday.
Martin O'Neill's men were able to pick up an unexpected win against the world champions at the Aviva Stadium, with Shane Long netting a late winner.
Long's goal stole the headlines, but it was McCarthy's performance in central midfield which took most of the plaudits.
The Everton midfielder was in wonderful form, as he stopped the likes of Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller and Marco Reus from getting into the game.
McCarthy ran tirelessly for the team, pressing Germany's players into making mistakes in the final third and stopping them creating chances.
It was a performance which was typical of the 24-year-old, who has earned a reputation as one of the hardest working players in the Premier League over the past few seasons.
Here is the best reaction from Republic of Ireland fans on social media site Twitter to McCarthy's display against Germany.
James McCarthy would probably go run a marathon to celebrate his MOTM performance against Germany. World class. #Tank— ®a$ђaad Aтcђa™ (@ThaKingSlayer) October 8, 2015
