Wow... It's clichéd to say it, but that was a real emotional rollercoaster. Firstly, Irish Irish fans went predictably mental over Wes Hoolahan's opener for Martin O'Neill's men.
The Norwich man's 46th minute half-volley from a beautifully-dinked Seamus Coleman cross sent the Green Army into understandable apoplexy.
The 25 minutes Ireland held the lead were the first time the side had been in the lead in an international tournament since the Saudi Arabia game 14 years and two days ago so it was somewhat predictable that the side looked a tad nervous when trying to protect the lead.
Sweden's 71st minute equaliser, which cruelly came off the head of Ciaran Clark - who was braveness personified facing down the might of Zlatan - dampened the mood somewhat... especially considering they managed to nab a draw without having the temerity to bother Darren Randolph's goal with a shot on target.
If Ireland keep this up Roy Keane will have no alternative but to slag off Alex Ferguson post match.

Deserve to be in front. Great effort by Hendrick. Making the chances. #IREvSWE

O'Neill deserves an assist for that goal with his quick hands for the throw-in! #COYBIG

But Sweden's equaliser was not so warmly welcomed.

My mam asked me if Clark might have forgotten before he hit it and that's why the own goal happened. I'm going to record her.

After a temporary interruption, Ireland return to their default tournament mode. The old 1-1. Could have been worse, could have been better
