  • It's all over and Republic of Ireland's hopes of reaching the quarter-finals are over after a comprehensive 4-0 defeat by Spain, who are now well placed to progress from Group C after this dominant performance in Gdansk.

    90
  • There will be three minutes of stoppage time to be played before Ireland are finally put out of their misery.

    89
  • Let's hope the Irish players give a performance their fans deserve against Italy in their final group game, even if it's meaningless in terms of progression.

    88
  • Both sides are going through the motions now as the clock ticks down towards full time.

    87
  • Fabregas twists and turns on the right wing before McClean slides in with a stong challenge to win the ball.

    86
  • The Irish may have been well beaten on the field tonight but their supporters are at least winning the singing contest in the stands with just as much ease.

    85
  • St Leger is booked after bringing down Silva in midfield.

    84
  • Ireland can't get the ball out of their box at the moment and I suppose at this late stage you can't blame them for letting their heads drop.

    84
  • Spain are turning the screw even tighter during the final stages of this match and will continue to look for another goal or two.

    83
  • GOAL FABREGAS - Silva takes the corner short to Fabregas, who takes a couple of touches inside the box before blasting an unstoppable shot past a helpless Given.

    82
  • Cazorla's curling effort from the edge of the box looks destined for the bottom corner but Given's great save turns it wide.

    81
  • Ireland make their third and final substitution of the night with Paul Green coming on for Whelan.

    80
  • Spain make a change with Iniesta making way for Santi Cazorla.

    79
  • An ambitious Xavi goes for goal but his curling effort is always going over the bar.

    78
  • Silva's heels are clipped around 30 yards out and Spain have a free-kick.

    77
  • James McClean makes his first competitive appearance for Ireland as he comes on to replace Duff.

    76
  • Martinez is booked after an unnecessarily strong lunge on Whelan in midfield.

    75
  • A clean shot at goal for Ireland at last as Keane's effort from the left side of the box is saved by Casillas.

    74
  • The Spanish fans are on their feet to applaud Torres, who leaves the field to be replaced by Cesc Fabregas.

    73
  • Spain have also answered some of their critics tonight following the disappointing performance against Italy last time out and the impact of Torres has made a big difference.
