Christy Moore's performance of Joxer... on The Late Late Show last night had the nation buzzing

PUT ‘EM UNDER Pressure, Give It A Lash Jack, Here Come The Good Times — what Ireland lacks in footballing trophies, it makes up for in bangers.

Perhaps the greatest football anthem of all, however, is Christy Moore’s Joxer Goes To The Stuttgart, a song about a soccer fan named Joxer who ventures out to support Republic of Ireland in West Germany as part of Euro 1988. 

28 (!) years on, Irish soccer fans are preparing to travel to France to support both Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in Euro 2016.

To get us all excited, Christy Moore performed Joxer Goes To Stuttgart on The Late Late Show last night… and it was pretty special.
