I love Norn Ireland, they did their best but the structure of this tournament has been wrong. A team can lose two games and still qualify to the knock out stage. Northern Ireland lost 3 of their 4 games and the media call them heroes. Not having a pop at the team, like I said, loved watching them on this big stage but lose two games and qualify? Where's the winning in that?

Exactly what I've been saying, they were actually a bit crap truth be told.

IMO the standard of football throughout this tournament has been substandard. Northern Ireland were the better of the two sides, just an own goal in it. Crossed by Bale which got the pundits excited.
