LYON (APP) – 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, moving themselves 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 will face either Iceland or England in the Stade de France quarter-final next Sunday.
