Euro 2016: “Night to remember on green field of France” (The Irish Times)

UEFA European Cup 2016, last matches of the Group phase.

Italy 0 – Republic of Ireland 1.


From Keith Duggan in the Irish Times just now:


“La vita é bella. The greening of France was completed last night when Robbie Brady stepped into Irish sporting folklore on a transcendent night for the national football team. On a riveting occasion in Lille, Martin O’Neill’s team won when nothing less would do to set up a second-round game against France in Lyon on Sunday.”
