We all remember the ‘Hand of Henry’, and revenge was on the mind for all Irish fans ahead of their knockout Euro 2016 tie with France.

The victor would go on to face the winner of Iceland v England, meaning a place in the semi-finals could well be attainable given neither England nor Iceland are all that.

Ireland took the lead in the second minute, after Robbie Brady scored a penalty, when Shane Long was brought down by Paul Pogba, and the internet melted.

At the break, it was all going well for Ireland, until Antoine Griezmann decided to turn up, score two in a few minutes and give his side a man advantage after being hacked down.

Elation turned to heartbreak and the internet was there to capture it all.

Finally, a penalty for Ireland…

Brady is obviously a hero…

The game was praised by everyone – after only two minutes…

Henry’s handball was mentioned once or twice…

Yellow cards aplenty were handed out…

Giroud came in for some stick as per usual…

Darren Randolph came in for plenty of praise as the onslaught came thick and fast…


Griezmann managed to pull France back to terms…

And then gave them the lead…

It then went from bad to worse, as Duffy had to hack Griezmann down and saw red…

Despite the loss, everyone was full of praise for the Irish…
