Ireland are Champions of the World

That is how every Irish fan North and South of the border are feeling today after both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland won last night.

Northern Ireland beat Greece 3-1 to reach their first major tournament since 1986, and they still have a chance to win their group if they beat or draw with Finland in their last game.

While the Republic of Ireland beat the world champions Germany 1-0 to be guaranteed a play-off spot, but are also in with a chance of getting automatic qualification or even to win the group.

It was a great night for Irish football, one that will live long in the memory for a lot of people and it would be great to see the whole of Ireland come together for a big celebration in France next summer for the Euro 2016 tournament.
