''I'm just heartbroken to be honest,'' Ronan said after Saturday's defeat.
''I definitely think we deserved something from the game. I'm particularly disappointed with the manner of the goals we conceded. Really the game should have been stopped for the clash of heads that led up to their first goal and then of course they enjoyed a huge slice of luck with their winner.''
Was this a friendly leading to the World Cup?
Yes, World Cup qualifier for Canada 2015.
