It was going so well until Italy were pulled out in Group E of Euro 2016.

The Azzurri joined ourselves, Belgium and Sweden in what must go down as the Group of Death in the tournament.

"It couldn't be any tougher," was Martin O'Neill's reaction to the draw in Paris.

Ireland will begin their campaign against Sweden on June 13 at the Stade de France, Belgium in Bordeaux five days later before rounding off our group against the Italian in Lille on June 22.

Wales and England must face off in Group B along with Russia and Slovakia.

Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland face Germany, Poland and Ukraine in Group C.

"I don't envisage us getting of winning this group but we can get out of it," O'Neill said.

Here was the best reaction on Twitter:
