Let's call it a night

We are yet to hear from Martin O'Neill or Roy Keane but we are wrapping this page up now.

Check back on the site for all of the reaction to a superb night, day, of football.

See you later. We'll get through the rest days. We will. 

'They deserved it. Sort of'

Italy 0-1 Republic of Ireland

More from Italy boss Antonio Conte: "[We played] against a side that played a lot of long balls, there were a lot of powerful tackles. The pitch definitely helped them more than us but they put a lot of grit into this game because it was life and death for them.

"Congratulations to the Republic of Ireland because they really wanted to go through and they were rewarded, perhaps more than they deserved, but they were rewarded nonetheless."

'I would have done well to miss it'

More from Republic of Ireland match winner Robbie Brady: "All the plaudits to Wes Hoolahan as well. He put it right on my head. I would have done well to miss it. 

"This was the last chance for us to push ourselves through. We were hard working and we had it all tonight. We stuck at it and put in a great performance and in the end got the result we deserved. Roll on France.

"We showed some fantastic results to get here. It has been a two-year project and we were not going to give up tonight. I don't think we have anything to fear going into this weekend. I think we can go as far as we allow ourselves in this tournament.

"I can't really explain this feeling. It is like an out of body experience and I was lucky enough to experience that tonight."

Can anyone tell me what the Italian version of 'balls in the mixer is'?

Superb moment as the Uefa translator goes for 'putting balls into the mixer' as Antonio Conte talks in Italian. 

'Very, very tough'

THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND INTO LAST 16

Italy boss Antonio Conte: "It was a tough contest, very physical on a barely playable pitch. If I am honest I was looking for a performance by my young players and I saw that because they scrapped. Today's match was very, very tough. We responded blow for blow. The pitch did punish us a bit more than them.

"Defeat doesn't mean anything but it has come on the back of two wins. We shouldn't let them get away with a loss. That said I saw some good responses from my players, these are tough games for everyone.

"Spain are one of the favourites to win the competition but now we will work hard to prepare for the game as best as possible."

Uva acerba?

THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND INTO LAST 16

Italy manager Antonio Conte says that "the pitch was barely playable" and that suited Ireland, "who played a lot of long balls."

John Motson

BBC commentator on BBC Radio 5 live

The third place argument has been laid to rest. Two fantastic games - the 3-3 this afternoon and then this performance by the Republic of Ireland.

To think now that they will play France on Sunday. Who would have thought when we started this adventure that England, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland would all be in the last 16?

'Absolutely flabbergasted'

THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND INTO LAST 16

Republic of Ireland's Robbie Brady: "I grew up dreaming about this stage and to go and do it in front of my family is the best feeling in the world. We need to regroup and go again but I am absolutely flabbergasted by it all. Every single one of the lads were unbelievable tonight."

I think seeing Northern Ireland qualifying, the players would have been watching that and wanted to create their own bit of history tonight.

'Best night of my life'

Italy 0-1 Republic of Ireland

Republic of Ireland winger James McClean: "The passion, grown men crying and complete love for our country, it is quite remarkable.

"We knew it would be win or bust, we left nothing on the field, the best night of my life hands down."

'One of the greatest nights'

Kevin Kilbane

I knew Robbie Brady when he first came into Hull from Manchester United. He had that passion to play for his country from a young age and is a player you would want on your side every day of the week.

Every aspect of the Republic of Ireland's game tonight was excellent. It was a totally dominant display. This will go down as one of the greatest Irish nights in history.

'I am emotional'

Italy 0-1 Republic of Ireland

Republic of Ireland match winner Robbie Brady: "What a moment for everyone involved, we said we were going to do a job and we did it. Into the last 16, we go again.

"My legs took me into the box for the goal and I am over the moon. I am emotional. I grew up waiting to play at this stage, to do it in front of my family is great."

Robbie Brady started the tournament at left-back, moved to the left wing and ends it playing at the tip of a diamond and heading in the crucial goal! Extraordinary.

Somebody somewhere was starting to write a listicle on 'the worst misses of all time' when Wes Hoolahan and friends failed to score that chance. But seconds later Hoolahan found Robbie Brady and that was history...

I was too busy dancing when you the draw for the last 16 was read out.  

We have a bit of history with France, we might just enjoy that one I think.

There's some great games in the draw but the stand out one for me is Croatia versus Portugal.

My heart sank when we missed that Wes Hoolahan chance, but we never even had chance to analyse it because Wes Hoolahan has that ability to put it out of his mind. That was a great moment in particular for him.

Great scenes of celebration inside the stadium in Lille. Robbie Brady is a very, very emotional man. As you can imagine! Roy Keane's even smiling!

It is amazing. I am so happy for Martin O'Neill, the staff and the supporters. They have done us all proud. This is incredible.

'We were desperate for this'

Italy 0-1 Republic of Ireland

Kevin Kilbane

Ex-Republic of Ireland international in Lille

It does not get any better than this.

We wanted this, we were desperate for this, I fancied our chances. I have seen this Italy team, they don't dominate possession or create too many chances.

The moment came through Wes Hoolahan's brilliant ball and Robbie Brady's finish. Amazing.

THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND INTO LAST 16

They made the pressure tell in the end. Twelve shots in total, four on target, one very special effort from Robbie Brady finding the net for Republic of Ireland. What a night.

Robbie Brady finds his brother in the crowd - somehow! - and his brother is in floods of tears. What a moment. There's a man not to expect back at work any time soon.
