what an excellent match! both sides played their hearts out.
a real nail biter, but casillas and co pulled it off!

i can't believe that fernando hierro almost cost Espana the game, that would have been a very sad way to retire.

ireland played an great match, a big to shay given!

Espana! Espana!

Ireland are out

They deserve to still be in. They played better than Spain towards the end. I hate penalty shoot outs I still remember the England v Argentina ones but I didn't cry then (I don't think)
I did this time.

Ireland you did your best but deserved better. Well done. Hopefully luck will be on your side next time round.

I doubt either of those sides did much penalty kick practice before this world cup.

No it didnt seem like there was too much penalty practice done at training did it! But hey...Im sure you cant practice for the kind of pressure those guys (kids some of them!) were under.

Ireland did so well and out played Spain in every department after halftime. Did Spain have a good chance at goal after theirs in the 8th minute? I cant remember one....

They did their country and all us mad U2 fans who wish we were Irish proud.

I was hoping for an England v Ireland final

Too bad Ireland is out. Those guys were really fighters in field. I'm feeling kinda sad as well.

Dammit. I so badly wanted them to move on. Thought I was gonna die there for a second! But at least they went out w/ PKs... even though I hate that process with a passion... Great game though! Keane, Given, Duff... love you guys... yeah.

An Ireland-England game would've been sweet.

I think Spain is a better side, even if they had a very dissapointing play in the second half, Ireland did too much with the team at hand.

By the way penalty kicks training has not much to do after playing a heart breaking phisical devasting 120 minutes, the one that wins is usually the one with the strongest will, or with the legs less tired. Your mind my say one think but the body does what it can.

well said rafmed,

i was disappointed when camacho brought out morientes and raul and elected to go with more defenders to protect the 1-0 lead. whereas ireland went with more offensive players, i always say, you need to keep pressure on your opponent and not back off and hope to preserve a lead, b/c as we know well in futbol a
1-0 lead is like no lead at all.

re: espana's play in the second half...
i think espana's playing ability was weakened b/c the irish defense were doing their job. i did notice they picked up the pace toward the end of the match and had 2 good shots on goal.

on a lighter note...
wonder if edgie or larry were at the game?! edgie had talked about going to the cup?! hmmm
