After last nights game the Football Association Of Ireland thanked the fans on the FAI website.
CEO of the Football Association of Ireland John Delaney said 'The Irish fans have made many sacrifices to follow our squad and have been absolutely amazing. The abiding memory that we will take away from this match will be the many thousands of Irish fans singing 'Fields Of Athenry' right up to and beyond the final whistle. They are a credit to our game and to our country. On behalf of the FAI, the squad and management team I would like to thank them for their incredible support.'
