Twitter goes mental as the Republic of Ireland lose to Serbia
- Twitter explodes as Ireland's chances of qualifying for the World Cup takes a beating.
Ireland finally showed up with some grit and uprightness but it simply wasn't enough as they got Serbed (ahem) a 1-0 defeat, thanks to a second half strike from Aleksandar Kolarov. Had they showcased the kind of character they put on display against the Serbs against their lesser opponents, the Irishmen wouldn't have ended up in a bind. Right now they need to win both of their remaining games and force Wales out if they want to play ball in Russia next year.
Quite expectedly, Ireland's dismal showings didn't miss the Twitteratis' eyes. They rained blows on the team and these are our picks.
Here's Kolarov's strike that got Serbia the 3 points.
The managers are in for some flak.
