These were the best of the Will Grigg’s on fire jokes as Northern Ireland are knocked out of Euro 2016 following a 1-0 loss to Wales on Saturday, with the legendary striker failing to play a single minute of football at the tournament.

With his side heading out of the competition following a 75th-minute Gareth McAuley own goal, manager Michael O’Neill was urged to bring on the most sung about player in France as a late substitute.

However he remained unused and Northern Ireland were unable to score against the well-marshalled Welsh defence – so these are the best of the Will Grigg’s on fire jokes as they exit Euro 2016 with defeat:

"With Will Grigg on the bench again today, would it be fair to assume he's actually not in the slightest bit on fire?"

How bloody dare you.

Will Grigg has been on fire for so long he's now dead. Apparently.

this tournament has taught us that will grigg is in fact far from "on fire" and the only thing that's terrified is his international career

— Reela (@mxndem) 25 June 2016

All this EU stuff is just the governments attempt to distract us from the fact that Will Grigg doesn't exist
