Ireland beat New Zealand 29:20 in an historic win at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

In an action-packed competition in which both teams had ruled out attempts, substitute Joey Carbery landed the decisive blow with a penalty shot from the center line just before the end.

Caelan Doris and Ronan Kelleher had put the hosts in the lead with impressive scores before Will Jordan reacted for the All Blacks.

And Akira Ioane believed that in an attempt to have pulled the guests to the edge of the leadership, just so that those responsible could save the Irish.

An expectant home crowd cheered their team on in the closing stages and a penalty kick was greeted with overwhelming cheers, less than 90 seconds before the end.

And Carbery made no mistake claiming a sensational victory to kickstart the party while Andy Farrell’s men marched on.

“It’s amazing,” said New Zealand-born James Lowe. “Never in a million years would I have thought that day would come. Since I was a child, I dreamed of being an All Black.

“I gave up on this dream, I wasn’t good enough, but to perform against the best team in the world. Standing in front of the haka is a childhood dream. “
