VIDEO: Get this horse in the team! Irish fan gets mobbed after nailing open window trickshot in Lille

Irish football is so lacking in goal-scoring options at the moment that this horse mask-wearing fan is probably Martin O'Neill's second best option up front.

Given that Daryl Murphy has yet to score an international goal and Robbie Keane is in the twilight of his career, it is no surprise that Ireland supporters mobbed this equine enthusiast after he pulled off this audacious trickshot.

Fans have been so starved of attacking action during this tournament that the open window kick probably felt like a goal.

If nothing else, at least the video is a sure sign that the Green Army isn't slowing down ahead of the final - and decisive - group game against Italy.

Video: French woman serenaded by hundreds of Irish fans took her own video and it's amazing 

It doesn't look like the horse would be available to Martin O'Neill even if the Ireland manager was of the mind to call it up - he's enjoying a well-earned glass of wine after his afternoon exploits.
