June 22nd, 2016 is a night that will live long in the memory.

While Robbie Brady's goal will be spoken about in decades to come, it is the first win the team have had at a major tournament in over 14 years.

It's also the first win in the social media age, giving fans an almost instantaneous access to the dressing room and the team bus.

Led by team captain Robbie Keane, the players certainly enjoyed themselves with a few drinks, as preparations begin for Sunday's Second Round game with France on Sunday.

It's going to be a long, yet exciting four days.


One team...One nation...One dream...together we stand..🇮🇪 And sing 😂😂#coybig #proud
