Claudine says the Green Army is the envy of all the other teams at Euros

MODEL Claudine Keane has paid tribute to the Green Army by saying Irish fans are the envy of other teams in the tournament.

Bikini-clad Claudine (27), the wife of Ireland captain Robbie Keane, was sunbathing alongside the wives and girlfriends of other players in Sopot.

Speaking ahead of the crucial clash against Spain, she said she has been blown away by the support and passion of the travelling fans.

"We have been made to feel very welcome and the fans have been really incredible. I think my highlight has been seeing the passion they have and how patriotic they are.

"They really are the most fantastic fans and even the other teams are talking about how great they are."

Claudine travelled to Poland with her parents and brother Ronan and has "really tried to embrace the whole Euro fever".

"I visited the square in Poznan which was great fun. There was plenty of friendly banter going on and even a few Robbie masks."

And she also said their son Robert (3) has been relishing his time in Poland and loves seeing his famous father taking to the pitch.
