1-1 was the final score, and as nobody got injured most Ireland fans were left satisfied by what they saw at the Aviva Stadium.
Our man of the match selection was the same as the official announcement in the shape of Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter, and he was the main focus of discussion when it came to winners on the night.
Arter needed a big performance, his status in the 23 man squad was in question coming into this game, and he delivered. There will be no doubt that Arter travels to France, and the question is now whether or not he will start.
Mikey and Gavan watched the match in the Balls.ie studio, and they gave their views on who the winners and losers of the match were in a special edition podcast recorded right at the final whistle.
Arter the clear main benefactor from the friendly, and it was admittedly tough to determine who could be put in the 'losers' column, apart from Memphis Depay who insisted that he be included.
