Claudine Keane went out partying with the Green Army last night and one fan, who did not recognise captain Robbie Keane's wife, has admitted trying to chat her up.

Footage captured by one supporter shows the former model drinking with fans outside the Blarney Stone bar in Bordeaux.

The mum-of-two, who is in France with her family, later posed for selfies with supporters who even sang 'We all dream of a team of Robbie Keane' to her.

Ireland fan Sean Collins (22), from Stockport, revealed that he was talking to her for ten minutes but didn't realise who she was.

“I asked who she was with, hoping that she was on her own or with a couple of female friends. I was hoping she wouldn't say a husband or boyfriend, to be honest because she is quite fit. She said she was with her family. 

“For a split second I fancied my chances until I realised who she was. I soon backed down.”

The electrician added: “I was talking to her with my pal Paul. We were talking to her for about ten minutes and he got a picture with her.

“I thought 'what the hell is he getting a picture for with this girl'? She was good-looking like, but.

“Then he said, 'That's Robbie Keane's missus'. I said 'bloody hell'.”

“No one recognised her until she went into the pub and she came back out and everyone was just singing at her. They were singing 'We all dream of a team of Robbie Keanes'.

“She stayed for about ten or 15 minutes. She was a really good sport. You wouldn't think she was a footballer's wife.”

Claudine arrived into Charles de Gaulle airport on Sunday where she told Independent.ie that she was aware of the security threats surrounding the event but that didn't hold them back from travelling.

"I am just aware of the security concerns in France rather than being frightened of them. I think life is for living and you can't really hold back on things like that.

"I know the security is tight here and I put my fate in the fact that they have made it safe for everyone that is coming over to support the teams."

She revealed that she is using the tournament as an excuse to go sight-seeing and travelling with her close family.
