Best team won, if we took one of the three half chances to go two up it would have made it very hard for the French to come back.

Cannot fault the effort from the boys in green but that can only take you so far.

Red card had big effect on the result but at least we lost it fair and square and that is all you want.

Delighted Payet wasn't crocked as well so good luck to France in the next round. :)

Great game.The Irish played well just got beat by one of the favourites.

Typical lack of humility and class from M.O.N. interviewed afterwards,still didn't spoil a great performance,but I well glad he ain't our manager.

That 7 nations army song they play immediately after a goal ruins the atmosphere. A crowd celebrating isn't good enough? They have to force the crowd to sing that insidious song? I loathe artificial crowd atmosphere.

Goal music should be banned across the World, it's for happy clapping retards (mainly Americans), it makes my blood boil :x
