VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED. I think I'm probably more disappointed because of how the game went.
If they'd lost and lost comfortably you'd say 'well, they lost to a very good team', and the way Spain started you thought maybe it's going to be that way.
It was a typical Irish performance though, they dug deep and eventually became the better side in the game - the side that looked more likely to go on and win it.
I think a lot of the praise, of course, goes to Mick and what he's been able to get out of the side. I think also you've got to give a lot of credit to the individuals that are out there.
Apart from the ability that they've got, they are a very spirited bunch of players who showed a real desire to do well in this championship.
Three players missed penalties for Ireland and, we've seen it in the past where just one individual - like Southgate - has missed. Of course, it seems like it is all down to them - so I suppose the only consolation is that the load is shared.
I know what the Irish public are like though, and one thing I can guarantee is that when they return back home they will receive an incredible reception at Dublin Airport. That I can guarantee.
