The Irish have been a joke during Euro 2012 ... and former Toon winger Damien Duff has reflected on how bad it was.
Damien Duff: "I dreamed, like everyone else, of going the whole way. It is obviously not going to pan out, but what can you say?
"We didn't help ourselves at times. Even at 1-0 at half-time, you come out and think, 'Right, let's keep it at that for 20, 25 minutes, maybe they will get a bit nervous'.
"But we didn't help ourselves. You are going to be pulled all over the place, really, with them.
"We did well at times and defended well at times, but we shot ourselves in the foot again.
"We are a proud set of lads and a proud nation, and we want to give people back home and the fans last night especially something to cheer about."
