Shane Duffy finished off another hectic campaign by helping the Republic of Ireland to victory.

Albion's player of the season featured in a 2-0 Euro qualifying win for Mick McCarthy's side against minnows Gibraltar in Dublin.

There were no goal scoring heroics by Duffy this time after heading a late equaliser in Denmark, although he nodded over an early chance from a corner.

It was a largely frustrating night for McCarthy's men as they had to rely on a first half own goal by Roy Chipolina and stoppage time header by Robbie Brady to take the points.

Duffy's latest appearance raised his tally for club and country over the past two seasons to 95.

He has under a month to rest up before Albion's week-long training camp and opening friendly in Austria under new head coach Graham Potter.

There was disappointment with Israel for Duffy's Albion team-mate Beram Kayal.

He was replaced in the second half as they crashed to a 4-0 defeat by Poland in Warsaw.
