Frustration and disappointment were the overriding emotion for Ireland's cricketers as they went down to England in the first one-day international on Friday.
The English successfully chased down their target of 127 with 30 overs to wrap up a seven wicket victory.
Adil Rashid was England's main man, taking 5-27. The leg-spinner secured his first five-wicket ODI haul, surpassing his previous best of 4-43, as the visitors collapsed to 126 all out in just 33 overs.
The second match of the 50-over series takes places at Lord's on Sunday.
Ireland captain Will Porterfield spoke to Sky Sports after their seven wicket loss to England. Porterfield says they were confident when Ed Joyce and Paul Stirling had them 40 without loss:
“How we started, with the first five or six overs with the bat, it looked like we could put a decent total on the board. But obviously 50 overs is a long time and we never got partnerships going once we lost a couple of wickets.
"It was spin that did the damage - we could have played that a lot better. We go to Lord's now on Sunday - it will be a great day, we'll have a lot of support, like today, and we have to put in a performance."
