I was crying with tears of joy - Hendrick

Jeff Hendrick says that he cried tears of joy after the Republic of Ireland's late 1-0 victory over Italy secured their place in the last 16 of Euro 2016.

Robbie Brady found the net in the 85th minute to book a tie against hosts France in the knockout stages on Sunday.

"I was crying my heart out, tears of joy. It's great for the fans and that result is for them tonight.

"We scored a lot of late goals in the qualifiers so we were always going to fight until the end.

"We had to give it one big push, give it everything and not leave anything out there."
