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.
Madigan cut his hair 😱 😭 #IREvARG— Aisling Mcintyre (@aismci) October 18, 2015
Argentina scored two tries early to leave Ireland shellshocked.
Some feared "another mass" may not do the trick.
For those wondering if there is already anything to be said for another Mass, remember where the Pope is from these days #IREvARG— Mark Dowling (@mark_dowling) October 18, 2015
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.
Ireland is in a better position then france was yesterday! So lets keep faith #IREvARG— ❤️ (@itsjustromy) October 18, 2015
The second half burst into life with a try from Jordi Murphy, set up by Luke Fitzgerald.
Great response from Ireland #IREvARG— benji brown (@benjitrfc) October 18, 2015
An Ian Madigan penalty made it a three point game.
As the second half wore on the tension was getting the better of some.

Disappointment for Ireland as the full time whistle blew. Argentina claimed a famous 43-20 victory
I don't think I've been this disappointed since ALL THE OTHER TIMES WE'VE ALL BEEN THIS DISAPPOINTED. #IRLvARG— Colm Tobin (@colmtobin) October 18, 2015
Best of luck to Argentina in the semi final.
