Wes Hoolahan sends Irish fans everywhere into delirium with cultured finish Newsdesk Newsdesk

Wes Hoolahan produced another great moment for Ireland at a major championships with a beautiful half-volley finish to put Ireland in front against Sweden at the Stade de France.

After coming close on a number of occasions in the opening half, the Norwich midfielder finally broke the deadlock when he was got on the end of a pin-point Seamus Coleman cross and directed the ball beautifully into the bottom corner.

Ireland lead was erased 23 minutes later when Ciaran Clark turned Zlatan Ibrahimovic's cross into his own net.
