This is the moment two Irish fans decided to take a shortcut away from the Stade de France but ended up in the middle of a busy motorway.

The pair were spotted near the St Denis Metro station shortly after Ireland drew 1-1 with Sweden in the nearby stadium.

Wearing flags and wigs the two men emerged from bushes only to be greeted by a two-lane motorway.

Instead of turning back they decided to keep going causing some cars to brake suddenly.
