Republic of Ireland player ratings
DARREN RANDOLPH: The West Ham goalkeeper had no chance with any of Belgium's three goals. Made an excellent reflex stop from Yannick Carrasco in the first half, who was offside - 6/10.
SEAMUS COLEMAN: Unable to assert himself offensively and provide any telling crosses - 6.
CIARAN CLARK: At fault for Belgium's third when he committed far too early to a challenge on Eden Hazard, and looked drained of any confidence thereafter - 4.
JOHN O'SHEA: Part of an Irish defence which simply could not cope with Belgium's attacking firepower, and unable to close down Romelu Lukaku when he unleashed the shot for Belgium's first goal - 5.
STEPHEN WARD: Brought into the team due to Jon Walters' injury. A sound first-half display from the Burnley man but Belgium had far too much joy down his flank in the second period - 5.
GLENN WHELAN: Unspectacular midfield shift from the Stoke man - 6.
JAMES McCARTHY: Culpable for Belgium's second after he failed to track Axel Witsel's run into the box. Substituted shortly afterwards - 5.
JEFF HENDRICK: Failed to make the impact he did against Sweden. Pressed and hustled but too often gave the ball away - 6.
ROBBIE BRADY: Moved into midfield owing to the reshuffle caused by Walters' absence. Tracked back well when required and showed some positivity in his play - 7.
WES HOOLAHAN: Unable to exert any influence on the game with the game too often bypassing him - 6.
SHANE LONG: Worked his socks off alone up front and unlucky not to win his team a penalty when on the end of a dangerous high tackle in the box - 7.
JAMES McCLEAN (for McCarthy 62): Offered more attacking threat than McCarthy but was dispossessed for the counter-attack which led to Belgium's third goal - 5.
AIDEN McGEADY (for Hoolahan 71): Missed a chance to grab a late consolation from a Brady cross - 5.
ROBBIE KEANE (for Long 78): The veteran did not have time to make an impact after Long was given a break - 5.
