  1. That's me done

    All over in Lyon then, no sign of Martin O'Neill for any reaction so we're shutting this page down.

    We'll bring you his reaction when we get it but now it's time to join Chris Osborne over here for the build-up to Germany v Slovakia. 

    See you later!

  2. 'It was there for us'

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Seamus Coleman

    Republic of Ireland defender Seamus Coleman: "We are disappointed. We felt it was there for us and we gave our all. It shows how well we have done that we are disappointed getting beat, We wanted to go further for the fans but we hope we made people proud. The fans here and at home are amazing. It is a special bond between the fans and the players.

    "We took a lot of belief from the Italy game. Second half was always going to be tough but we couldn't keep the first half performance going.

    "Shane [Duffy], in the last game and up until the red card today, has been sensational."

  3. Republic's Shane Duffy sees red

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Yep. That's a red card.

  4. France's weaknesses?

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Get some shots on target. And shut up shop after the break

    o    11 of France’s last 12 goals at the EURO have been scored after half-time.

    o    France have conceded two goals from three shots on target at Euro 2016.

  6. Griezmann slides in second for France

    Two men, one ball, one massive error. Great finish. Game over.

    Mou Point: Cynicism says that we'll give Iceland the 'hiding' that Roy's been talking about, then get duly rolled over by the French

    Daniel Woodley: This has been a tale of two halves for #IRL. Superb in the first but outplayed in the second. Can hold their heads up high

  8. Post update

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    France are into the quarter finals then and they will play either England or Iceland at the Stade de France on Sunday. That's a 20:00 BST kick-off. Reserve the TV now.

  9. Griezmann the key man

    Antoine Griezmann
  10. Griezmann heads France equaliser

    France piled on the pressure and here the dam finally burst. What a superb header from Antoine Griezmann. 

  11. 'Done them proud'

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Kevin Kilbane

    Ex-Republic of Ireland international in Lyon

    Each and everyone of the Republic players have done the country proud. The pressure told in the end. Antoine Griezmann was the star with two goals.

  12. Post update

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Darren Randolph is in tears. The Republic's West Ham keeper was outstanding today. He made nine saves. 

  13. Brady stuns France with early penalty

    We were crying out for an early goal to open up these knockout games and here it was. Robbie Brady scored inside two minutes to give the Republic lift off.

  14. BreakingFRANCE INTO THE QUARTER-FINALS

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Hugs and embraces everywhere in a largely jubilant Lyon. The Republic gave it their all but it wasn't to be in the end.

    France had serious questions asked of them. But they answered them well. 

    Antoine Griezmann

    Dismantle the sink from the kitchen and get it forwards!

    Didier Deschamps
  17. GREAT SAVE!

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Antonie Griezmann will never have a better chance to score a hat-trick in a tournament. Clean through, again, good save by Darren Randolph. He's been excellent.

    John O'Shea with a Bobby Moore tackle on the edge of his own area as the Irish send many men forwards. Richard Keogh as target man...

  19. Post update

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    Good ball in from Wes Hoolahan, headed away. Jeff Hendrick wipes out Kingsley Coman and Hendrick is lucky not to go there! On a booking, that was rash. 

    Kingsley Coman
  20. Post update

    France 2-1 Republic of Ireland

    One moment could send us to extra time and Robbie Brady almost gets in on to a good pass from Shane Long.

    Almost but not quite. The story of the Republic's day I feel...
