France beat Ireland 2-1 to reach Euro 2016 quarter-finals
FOOTBALL By AFP | June 26th 2016
Antoine Griezmann broke Irish hearts with two second-half goals as France came from behind to claim a 2-1 win over ten-man Republic of Ireland and move into the Euro 2016 quarter-finals on Sunday.
Robbie Brady, who had netted the Republic's winner against Italy, had converted a penalty with just two minutes gone to give the Irish a shock lead.
Victory in the last 16 clash at the Stade de Lyon means France face either Iceland or England in the Stade de France quarter-final next Sunday.
