These Irish fans went to great lengths to ensure that they got into the Denmark game

Fair play to them...

Ireland's clash with Denmark didn't exactly set the world on fire in terms of entertainment, but it was a reasonable result for Ireland and leaves us in a decent position as we head to the second leg on Tuesday evening.

Irish fans were in great form over in Copenhagen and even the police welcomed the traveling fans back, praising them for their conduct in the Danish capital.

They tweeted: "From a police point of view, Ireland is welcome to play here again. No registered incidents regarding fans all night. Thank you."

Prior to the game itself, Irish fans were told that they would not be admitted into the home section of the stadium, and some people had their tickets cancelled due to the fact they were Irish fans.

But these three fans from Kildare weren't about to get turned away from the stadium because they were Irish, so they decided to go undercover.

They dressed up as Danish fans in order to get into the home section. After dousing themselves in red paint, putting on Danish gear, printing out a page stating they were part of the Martin Laursen fan club from Aston Villa, they made their way into the game.

We admire the lengths they went to to ensure their deception went unnoticed...
