Bloody hell. That was excruciating.
A 1-3 defeat by Croatia... the side that many thought we would have our best chance against. So much for that, then.
Indeed, before the match kicked off yesterday evening, RTE's Bill O'Herlihy announced that 87% of respondents to an RTE poll thought Ireland would beat Croatia (ranked 8th best team in the world by UEFA).
How could so many Irish people get it so wrong, eh? I'm shocked.
It's just damage limitation from now on folks, unless we wheel Ray Houghton out for the Italy match...
