Euro 2016 RO16: France 2-1 Rep Of Ireland

For a whole half, a shock looked on the cards.

The Republic scored the quickest goal of the tournament so far, a penalty dispatched by Brady via the post following a foul on Long.

The host nation gasped in shock. That wasn't in le script.

But gradually the screw turned, and the French moved forward and the Irish sunk back. An equaliser, and indeed a winner were inevitable, and so it proved.

But no shame on the Irish, they almost pulled off a shock, but it is the French who move on...
