We all felt like this when Wes Hoolahan blasted Ireland into the lead against Sweden on Monday night.

Tom Hughes, who is originally from Lusk in North Dublin, was watching the game with his wife April and their 7-year-old son Gavin at their home in Nottingham when Ireland took the lead after 47 minutes.

What happened next was captured by Tom's wife on her phone.

Tom completely loses it, grabbing his son and dancing around their living room.

Speaking to he explained: "We live in Nottingham, and I am a big Irish fan. I follow them everywhere and I am going to France next week.

"My wife recorded the video and I did not know she was doing it, my son just happened to be walking around the sitting room when we scored."

Mark is travelling to Ireland's final group game against Italy next week and if this video is anything to go by he will be a wonderful addition to the Green Army.
