The Irish side went up against the Netherlands, who have now won the tournament seven times, and under some sweltering heat in London, ended up losing the game 6-0.

That score can feel a little misleading however, as there no never a moment in the match when it felt like the Irish side had given up, even for a moment, and they continued to keep the Dutch side on their toes throughout.

Once the final score was settled, everyone took to social media to pledge their support to the incredibly talented and passionate team.
