Ireland fans ‘only being so nice to make England look like d*ckheads’

Ireland fans admit they are only being nice to make the English “look like a right bunch of dickheads”.

The Irish have been on a one-nation crusade to charm the Euros by singing Abba songs and cleaning up after themselves in Bordeaux.

In contrast, England fans were seen goading locals in Marseille and clashed with Russia ultras last week.

And Ireland fan Leigh O’Satchell said: “To be honest, I wanted to come over here and get pissed in the streets.

“But then we saw what the English were up a to and thought we could make them look like a right bunch of dickheads.”

The Irish are taking on Belgium in Bordeaux today.

And O’Satchell added: “I’ve got to leave the game early because I’m volunteering at the local library tonight.

“We’ve been told that Joe.ie need at least one video an hour of us, so it’s then straight on to the kitten sanctuary for the overnight shift before we muck in at the homeless shelter.”
