VIDEO: This ‘Nessun Dorma’ montage is perfect to get you in the mood for Ireland v Belgium
RTÉ really pulled it out of the bag with their Conor McGregor promo before Ireland v Sweden and it looks as if they’ve repeated the trick for Ireland v Belgium on Saturday.
We’re not sure if this will be broadcast immediately before the game, but even if it isn’t, you should probably watch it on repeat to get you in the mood.
‘Nessun Dorma’ is, of course, traditionally associated with Italia ’90, but as Andrea Bocelli showed during Leicester’s title celebrations recently, it always works a treat, as it does here when set to some inspirational footage of the Boys in Green.

The song features amongst a medley of classic Irish football songs in a collaboration between RTÉ Player, RTÉ Concert Orchestra, New Dublin Voices choir and conductor/arranger Gavin Murphy, which you can watch in full on the RTÉ Player here.
Come on you boys in green.
