  1. Post update

    As Mick says, Republic of Ireland v Denmark next month is a cup final. Will McCarthy's side get the job done?

    That's it from us, see you later!

  2. 'We had a second half we can be proud of'

    Switzerland 2-0 Republic of Ireland

    Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy, speaking to Sky Sports: "Switzerland proved they were a very good side. No shock to me. They have good players, who have played together for a long time.

    "They were dominant in the first half but we had a second half we can be proud of. We haven't scored that many goals. In the past we have managed to keep a clean sheet but we didn't today.

    "It is a cup final. The unlikely thing was that we were going to come here and beat that team. We would have had to play to our maximum and we didn't. Beat Denmark to reach Euro 2020, I would have taken that at the start and I'll take it now."

  3. 'Frustrating'

    Switzerland 2-0 Republic of Ireland

    Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph, speaking to Sky Sports: "It was frustrating to lose. Them scoring with the last kick of the game made it that bit tougher but they are a tough team. We have another chance to go out and get the win at home next month."

  4. 'We can beat Denmark'

    Switzerland 2-0 Republic of Ireland

    Republic of Ireland striker Aaron Connolly, speaking to Sky Sports: "I thought we played well in the second half but the first half was not good enough and we know that.

    "The pitch was tough to play on, it was tough to get a set of passes going. It was a disappointing night but there is still all to play for. I believe we can play against Denmark and get three points and qualify.

    "I was proud to make my full debut but at the end of the day it ended in defeat and personally I didn't have a great game. I will go back to Brighton and try and keep my performances going there and hopefully come back in November."

  5. 'We were poor in the first half'

    Switzerland 2-0 Republic of Ireland

    Republic of Ireland forward Jeff Hendrick, speaking to Sky Sports: "I thought we were pretty poor in the first half. We didn't keep the ball well enoguh and we wanted to put that right in the second half and I thought we played better. When we got into their final third maybe our final pass was not good enough.

    "Denmark is a big game, we are at home. All to play for."
