VIDEO: Irish supporters absolutely lost their s*it after Robbie Brady's penalty

In 9 months time, there's going to be a lot of babies named Robbie.

Nerves are shot. Adrenaline is pumping. Ireland are leading. France are worrying.

Robbie Brady's penalty in the early stages at the Stade de Lyon sent Irish supporters into delirium  as Martin O'Neill's men took a shock early lead against the hosts. There's no denying that Paul Pogba tripped Shane Long in the box and then Brady - that beautiful, beautiful man - did this.

We were also treated to some heroic defending and the sexiest touch that has ever been performed by a Tipperary man.

France have rallied since going behind but Ireland's defence has stood firm so far.  There's still a long way to go in this match but these scenes after Ireland took the lead are absolutely wonderful.
