I'm watching MOTD on catchup and just caught this - jesus christ that's embarrassing.

If we're going to replay offsides and handballs at all angles, surely we need to look at things like that again. That was ridiculous. It makes the game look silly, and it changes the game as a contest.

I really wish one of the pundits would tear the fakers a new one.
The pundits - Jenas and wor Al - are at least calling it out.

Come on Norn Ireland, Ireland and Scotland. Get to the Euros lads.

Our seconds have played fairly well. DCL looks really good.

NI have had loads of chances, 3 great saves but a couple that we missed more than anything.

When was the last time ROI scored more than 1 goal in game? You’s seen to have a lot of 1-0, 1-1 and 0-0s.

I just don’t get the hype around Jamal Lewis.
I don’t think he works hard enough, he looses the ball about 75% of the time he gets it and is often caught out of position.
He’s quick, thats about it.

He's not a good defender but he's a great athlete and is actually tricky, I imagine the coaches see the defensive side as something he can be coached on while you can't coach pace.

Scotland - get the upset and play us at the euros lads. You know you want to.

Unlucky to Ireland - really badly need any striker now of note.

Norn Ireland - G'wan lads!!

I may be mistaken, but I believe Stuart Dallas to be the second coming of Christ.

We actually played a bit of half decent football and created chances for once . Finishing terrible though , Hourihane’s miss was as bad as it gets

When McGoldrick started coming out to get the ball we started to look dangerous. Brady on the right cutting in worked very well.

That should be the last we see of McLean. He's not suited to a passing game. We looked a lot better when he was subbed

Don't be a wanker tonight.

Scots win their first ever shootout and Norn Ireland beat what I think is a team just as good as Wales on pens.

Aye, what is it that the English find so difficult about these penalty things? Seems pretty straightforward to us.

I'm a bit confused - Armi is really down on Ireland but I look at the42 article and the comments from Irish fans and they seem pretty upbeat?

Now, I was watching England but am I missing something here?

They're playing a good style. Passing and keeping possession. No cutting edge though

The matches were on at 01.15 here but at halftime I went to bed as I felt terrible, so bad I couldn't sleep but couldn't get up again to watch the footie. Having read the reports I'm not too worried about the ROI. It's a shame they won't play in a home Euros but if NI beat Slovakia then that's fair enough as we deserve it more. If they had been in Ireland's group (as they should have been) they would have qualified there and then.

Also, although Ireland seem weak, they've been good defensively, just need to find a couple of strikers and the future could be not too bad.

I think I read they only conceded 6 goals in their group and every other team bar one, who concede less than 10, won their groups. It's a big ask to find a striker or two but if they do, the future could be good, and they're playing (or trying to) positive football.

And they won. Seems typical 2 of the 3 goals were players who have played for Man Utd scoring penalties

And the other was a massive deflection.

Belgium without a few players and Carrasco missed a few chances but England clung on when under the cosh.
