Watch as Irish fans play keepie-uppie with members of international media

The Irish fans have been taking the international media attention in their stride, writes Stephen Barry.

The Green Army have been making friends all over France in a catalogue of stories that, at this stage, are too numerous to list.

The media attention has been clear in Lille ahead of the group decider against Italy, and reporters in the main square were welcomed into a game of keepie-uppie with the fans.

In between interviews, the beIN Sports reporter and a photographer, laden with equipment, join in.
