Republic of Ireland defender Seamus Coleman rallied his teammates into producing one of our greatest ever performances in the 1-0 victory over Italy at Euro 2016.

The win in Lille helped Ireland advance to the round of 16 where they were ultimately knocked out by hosts and eventual finalists France.

Martin O'Neill revealed after the game that a number of the players had commented on Seamus Coleman's 'inspirational' speech.

The details of the 28-year-old's rousing pep talk have not been disclosed but the Donegal native has offered a few hints in a teaser clip released by RTE for Two Shades of Green which airs on December 29.
