Video: An early contender for best video from Euro 2012
The English team bus arrived at their hotel in Krakow this afternoon. Some Irish fans were waiting. We think we can safely can call this 1-0 to the Boys in Green.
We are expecting to find lots of brilliant videos over the next few weeks as Irish fans revel in their first major soccer tournament in 10 years. We didn’t think we would find one this good, this quick.
We won’t keep you from the clip too long but when the England team bus arrived at their hotel in Krakow today, it seems that the Irish fans, somehow, outnumbered the English. And they out sang them too.
From ‘You’ll never beat the Irish’ to ‘The Fields of Athenry’ the Irish fans belt out any number of Lansdowne Road classics to welcome Roy Hodgson’s men to Poland.
They even find time to sing a little bit about John Terry. It all sounds fairly good natured and according to reports on Twitter, the English fans were soon hitting back with chants of ‘Thierry Henry’ and ‘You’re going down with the Euro’. See, all good clean fun.
