Former Coronation Street star Charlie Lawson has shared a rousing video clip in celebration of Northern Ireland’s win over Ukraine at Euro 2016.

The Fermanagh actor, best known for his portrayal of Big Jim McDonald, took to Twitter earlier today to rally the team.

“Lads, no more dreaming, we’ve got to win tonight,” he said in the video.

“Stiffen up the sinews, summon the blood and come on Northern Ireland. And for all you in the Green and White Army, the best fans in the world, come on Northern Ireland!”

Following Northern Ireland’s win this evening, he returned to Twitter to post another clip, again appearing with the flag for a victory dance.

He can be seen waving the flag and chanting: “Come on the Ulster boys, making all the noise!

“I told you you could do it boys, absolutely f***ing brilliant, march on, march on!”

Next Tuesday, Northern Ireland will take on Germany in Paris, and Lawson finished his video with a warning: “Germany, watch your friggin’ asses!”
