By Steve Neville

A sad day for Irish Rugby as Argentina secured victory to claim a brilliant win.

The Irish team got a brilliant reception when arriving at the stadium.

Some fans were nervous ahead of the game

The loss of Paul O'Connell was still on the mind of every Irish fan.

While Ian Madigan's haircut was on the mind of some others.

Argentina scored two tries early to leave Ireland shellshocked.

Some feared "another mass" may not do the trick.

Tommy Bowe's injury had fans worried.

Some fans were trying anything to lift the team.

Luke Fitzgerald gave the Irish fans hope with a superb try.

10 points down at half-time but Irish fans were hanging onto the positives.

The second half burst into life with a try from Jordi Murphy, set up by Luke Fitzgerald.

An Ian Madigan penalty made it a three point game.

As the second half wore on the tension was getting the better of some.

And suddenly an Argentine try broke Irish hearts

A final try seemed to seal Ireland's faith.

Disappointment for Ireland as the full time whistle blew. Argentina claimed a famous 43-20 victory

Best of luck to Argentina in the semi final.
