Forget Joxer, Billy Joel rewrites and Putting 'Em Under Pressure... this could be the football tune of the summer.

Irish pub owner John Paul Wright put pen to paper and wrote the tune after the Ireland-Bosnia game in November.

The lyrics ("Will we dance, will we dance, will we dance in France?") mean this football anthem is guaranteed to become an earworm.

John Paul is the manager of Murphy's law Irish pub in Salzburg, Austria. The dedicated football fan has been to every Ireland game for the last 4 years.

He recruited the Irish community in Salzburg to record the music video for the song.

"The Irish lads on the stage all live in Salzburg and go to the games, they are all off to France in June," he told Independent.ie.
