WATCH: Robbie Brady's post-match interview brought a tear to his (and everyone else's) eye
If you had to pick a player who summed up everything that's good about Irish football you would pick Robbie Brady.
Skill, courage, passing, technique, heart. He has them all.
And now is name is there alongside Houghton, Whelan, McGrath and Keane as a legend of Irish football.
Brady's 85th minute header secured what was just Ireland's fourth ever victory at a major tournament and now the green army marches on to play France in Lyon on Sunday afternoon.
Afterwards, Brady spoke to RTE's Tony O'Donoghue and you could hear in his voice, see in his eyes exactly what this moment meant him, exactly what it means for this team to spoken about like the sides of '88, '90 or 2002.
