Irish fans have brought a little bit of Dublin to Lille after pouring a bottle of washing up liquid into a well-known fountain.

Reminiscent of the Anna Livia statue - known as the flousy in the jacuzzi - the fountain in Place Charles de Gaulle has been turned into a sea of foam and bubbles.

The fountain has become a popular meeting place for Irish fans ahead of our clash with Italy tonight.

The fountain, located in the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, was erected to mark the end of the Austrian siege of Lille in the 1790's.
