Republic of Ireland have failed to reach the World Cup in Russia next summer following a heavy defeat to Denmark in the second leg of a play-off tie between the two sides.

Despite scoring first at the Aviva Stadium, Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane’s side were undone by Christian Eriksen and lost 1-5 on Tuesday night after a goalless draw in the opposite fixture in Copenhagen.

One positive to take from tonight's game: the 50 Irish lads that would have disappeared in #Russia2018 will live #IREDEN

Ireland’s defeat means that England will now be the only home nation to be getting a doing from the Russian hooligans next summer.

1 Russian Ruble equals 0.014 Euro. Imagine converting that in your head for a few weeks while you're pissed as a fart? You wouldn't know whether you're buying a house or a pint. No we'll stay at home, thanks. #COYBIG #IRLDEN

At least we won't have to watch videos of the Ireland fans fixing people's cars and helping old wifey's cross the road next Summer anyways, just pure hooliganism

The Danes have now scored more than South Africa did on Saturday. #IREDEN

Gutted for the fans. Gutted for the Russian prostitutes who’ll never get to learn about spice bags. Or the hilarious double meaning of ‘craic’ #COYBIG #IREDEN

Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales should organise a mini-tournament next summer.
If they arranged it for the third week of the World Cup they could even keep a slot open for England.
