It was a cruel defeat and with a referee that'd put Raul Nazare to shame, Ireland suffered a three-nil defeat to Belgium in Bordeaux.
It was pretty evident from kick-off that Belgium was outclassing Ireland and our own defence was being outmatched, however the Twitter reaction made it so much worse.
You know what they say about misery? It loves company.

Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.
If Belgium score a fourth I'm leaving the European Union. #COYBIG

That's.. that's oddly beautiful.
Not sure if that chant is right.

At the very least.

Again, at the very least.

This child has many more defeats ahead of her, unfortunately.
