WATCH: Irish fan in Lille gets stuck in a tree retrieving football, is cheered on by the crowd

"Get down, for the Boys in Green."

The nerves have well and truly set in among Irish fans ahead of the crunch Euro 2016 encounter with Italy in Lille.

Some Boys in Green supporters are passing the time by having an impromptu kick around, one example of which was very impressive indeed.

This one, on the other hand, was, eh, less so.

JOE reader Mark Fanagan filmed this clip of a fellow supporter in Lille up in a tree trying to retrieve the football they were playing with, all of which inspired this interesting variation of a well-known Irish football chant.

Have a gander.

Mark told JOE that the mission was a success, with the brave fan and the all important football returning safely to the ground.

Let's hope we can demonstrate similar courage and co-ordination on the pitch.
