Italy fans have taken to Twitter to react to West Ham United defender Angelo Ogbonna’s performance against the Republic of Ireland.

The centre back was handed his first start of Euro 2016 as Italy took on the Republic of Ireland in their final group game.

Antonio Conte made a number of changes for the game, with first place in the group having already been secured after wins over Belgium and Sweden in the other two fixtures.

One of the changes was the introduction of Hammers star Ogbonna, who came in to the team in place of Juventus man Giorgio Chiellini.

He did not enjoy the best of evenings either as Ireland dominated for much of the game and secured an eventual 1-0 victory, courtesy of Robbie Brady’s late header past Salvatore Sirigu.

Indeed, Ogbonna was lucky not to concede a penalty in the clash, having managed to get away with dragging down an Ireland man in the box.

Italy fans were not impressed by his display, as they took to Twitter to heavily criticise the defender for his overall performance.
