Antoine Griezmann scored twice in four minutes as France came from behind to beat Republic of Ireland 2-1 and reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2016.
Ireland made a perfect start in Lyon as Robbie Brady converted a penalty in just the second minute after Paul Pogba’s clumsy foul on Shane Long.
It took France until the second half to respond, with Griezmann heading in an equaliser in the 57th minute and scoring again shortly afterwards to put the hosts ahead.
Shane Duffy was then shown a straight red card for a last-ditch foul on Griezmann and France held on to book a quarter-final against either England or Iceland on July 3.
Neither N’Golo Kante nor Adil Rami will be available for that tie after picking up bookings against Ireland.
