One is from Spain, the other from Germany... neither a hurling stronghold.
Every team has their own celebrity supporters but Clare have managed to inspire two very unlikely fans in Arsenal stars Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla.
The German international tweeted this pic early this morning with the message: “Good luck @GaaClare @ClareHurlers for All-Ireland final. Today Santi & me smashed it over the bar #wristyhurlers”.
The wristyhurling hashtag is proving particularly popular with fans of the yellow and blue who will be hoping to see their side end a 16-year wait for All-Ireland success this evening.
Unfortunately for the Gunners’ duo this evening’s All-Ireland replay clashes with their trip to the Liberty Stadium as they clash with Swansea.
