Match Commentary

81'+135-0 End of second half
80'Finally, a match that ended as a contest after two minutes is over. Russia can take some heart and some credit from their performance, having spent a quarter of the match a man down, but the result was never in doubt.
80'Into the last minute. Ireland, truthfully, will be glad to see the back of this game. They're inching towards the knockout phase, where you have to think the tournament will really and truly begin for them.
