Robbie Keane reckoned he "did okay" as he bowed out of international football while equalling the goalscoring record of the legendary Gerd Muller.
Keane’s volley in the 4-0 win over Oman was his 68th goal for Ireland and put him level on the charts with the former West Germany international.
"He has to come out of retirement now and try and beat me," Keane joked after the game.
“It was obviously nice to get that record. It certainly wasn’t something that I was thinking about too much. For some reason there was a lot of people talking about it.
“To have 68 goals, a player of his stature, to have the same number is incredible.
“First and foremost, it has been a great honour to put that green jersey on over 18 years. I would never have imagined that I’d score 68 goals.
“Maybe in a fews days or a few years I’ll sit back and look at it and say ‘You did okay’."

The LA Galaxy striker added: “It was always going to be nice to score a goal and finish with a good win, in front of the home fans, I certainly couldn’t have wished for any more.
“All I can do is say thank you and I really appreciate it.”
