GOAL! France 2-1 Republic of Ireland (Griezmann 61)

In the first half the possession stats were 55-45 in France’s favour, now they’re 76-24 and the Republic just can’t cope with the pressure. A long ball forward finds Giroud, who drags two defenders out of the way, and his nod down is perfectly played to Griezmann. He thumps his shot past Randolph from 10 yards.
RED CARD! Shane Duffy sent off

66 min: Ireland are carved open once more, Giroud feeds Griezmann who is through on goal again. Duffy slides in desperately and brings him down just outside the box. He’s off and France have a free-kick in the D.
