Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill praises his team following their 2-1 defeat by Euro 2016 hosts France in the last-16 game.
O'Neill said France had a "massive advantage" in having three days extra rest ahead of the Lyon clash.
Robbie Brady's penalty put the Republic ahead before an Antoine Griezmann double knocked them out of the tournament.
