Pictures from the match
The Republic of Ireland’s brave Euro 2016 campaign came to an end after a 2-1 defeat to France in Stade de Lyon

The round of 16 game started in dramatic fashion with Ireland taking the lead in the second minute via a Robbie Brady penalty.

Brady slotted home his second goal of Euro 2016 off the post after Paul Pogba had fouled Shane Long. Ireland taking the lead without a French player having touched the ball.

Darren Randolph was equal to the French threat in the first half, denying Paul Pogba’s free kick effort and Dimitri’s Payet’s long range drive.

Daryl Murphy had French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris sprawling on 20 minutes when his goal-bound volley was clawed away by the French stopper.

Antoine Griezmann equalised for France 12 minutes into the second half, powering a header past Darren Randolph after an excellent cross from Pogba.

Griezmann gave the hosts the lead on 61 minutes after striding onto Pogba’s knock down and riffling the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

Ireland were reduced to 10 men after Shane Duffy received a red card on 66 minutes having fouled Grizemann who was in on goal, Duffy having been the last defender.

The Irish defence withstood French pressure as Andre-Pierre Gignac rattled the Irish cross bar with 13 minutes remaining. Substitute Jon Walters flashed an effort wide with four minutes remaining.

Darren Randolph denied Gizemann a hat-trick in the final minute as brave Ireland bowed out of Euro 2016.
