The Twitter reaction to a nerve-shredding first half between Ireland and Poland in Warsaw

Oh Ireland, why can't you leave our nerves alone?

Just one goal needed.

Let’s try and be positive here. Poland lead 2-1 at the interval and Ireland need a 2-2 draw to secure automatic qualification for the European Championships in France next summer.

It’s been scratchy stuff from the Irish but the hope is that the kind of nerves we’ve suffered from all day hit the Poles about the 60 minute mark and we can sneak an equaliser.

It’s been another tense 45 minutes of football in Warsaw – here’s how Twitter saw it…

It didn’t take long for Poland to snatch the lead.

But we were still watching the replays when Ireland were awarded a penalty.

Leaving only one question… who takes our penalties?

Jon Walters is the answer, and he makes no mistake from the spot. 1-1.

Almost straight away Poland have the ball in the net again after some sloppy Irish defending (again) but thankfully it’s chalked off.

Mostly, people were just a bit confused.

Lewandowski’s header put Poland back in front, though it didn’t really change Ireland’s task.
