Ireland have been tipped to beat France and emerge on top of Pool D in tomorrow's World Cup clash in Cardiff by 'Lord of the Dance' Michael Flatley.

The star, a keen Munster and Ireland fan, has altered the world tour of his latest show to ensure he is in the Millennium Stadium for the eagerly awaited showdown which will determine the quarter-final pairings.

He will attend tomorrow's match with a group of rugby-mad friends after flying to the UK from Ireland by private jet.

"I believe Ireland can beat France," Flatley said confidently. "It's going to be a very tough game. There certainly won't be more than a few points between both sides at the final whistle.

"Ireland has a great coach in Joe Schmidt.

"We also have world class talent in Paul O'Connell, Peter O'Mahony, Johnny Sexton and Keith Earls."
