The Irish football team also have a vital tie coming up next month, in the playoffs to get to the European Championships next year.

In a bid to inspire both teams, the Gardiner brothers donned their green sports jerseys and performed a flawless routine to the dance track Three Doors Down by Kryptonite.

They added #COYBIG (Come On You Boys In Green) to the comments on the video and have already received great praise from viewers.

Earlier this year both brothers were crowned World Champion Irish dancer for their age group, with Michael winning the men aged 19-20 category and his younger brother Matthew claiming the boys aged 15-16 prize.

So with two world champions on show, the video is pretty special.
