Four-time All-Ireland winner Colm Cooper was a surprise special guest on RTE's World Cup highlights package yesterday.

The 31-year-old, who is a big Liverpool fan, joined presenter Aidan Power and Sunday Independent columnist Richard Sadlier on the couch for yesterday's show.

Giovanni Trapattoni's interpreter Manuela Spinelli and Sligo Rovers star Joseph Ndo have also been guests on the show previously.

Some fans on twitter found Cooper's input "insightful" but many expressed frustration that a GAA star was covering football.
