WATCH - No corkscrew? No problem! - Irish fans find ingenious way of opening wine bottle
It appears from the video like they got some helpful advice from a kind French stranger.
An Irish fan used an unusual method to open a bottle of wine on a tram in Lyon with scores of people watching on.
The thirsty supporter placed the bottle into his shoe and began whacking it off the wall of the tram.
It took a lot of persistence but the cork did emerge and a pal finished off the job with his teeth.
The tenacity and never-say-die spirit of Martin O'Neill's team is clearly rubbing off on the fans.
