Republic of Ireland did their best to keep pace with Belgium, but the Red Devils eventually opened the floodgates in the second half and won, 2-0.
Republic of Ireland played their scrappy brand of football, doing the best they could to make up for a lack of quality, and it served them well for the first 45 minutes with the two sides staying level on the scoreboard. The tide turned just after the second half began, when Toby Alderweireld caught Shane Long with his boot on an attempted clearance. The play could have been adjudged worthy of a penalty, but the referee did not see it that way and Belgium would score on a counter-attack just moments later. There simply wasn't enough attacking pressure from the likes of Long, Wes Hoolahan and Robbie Brady and Republic of Ireland were eventually run over. On an optimistic note, they play Italy in the final round and the Azzurri will likely rest the majority of their regular starters. Jun 18 - 11:03 AM
