Ireland and Austria fans' impromptu meeting will leave your heart swelling with pride

This looks like great craic.

With all the coverage football hooligans get, it is really nice to see two sets of supporters coming together and having a song and a chat and bonding over the universal theme of football.

It's not exactly breaking news to say that the Irish supporters are the best fans in the world but Austria's supporters are certainly a match for the Irish boys off the pitch.

The Austria supporters start off at one end of the street in this video and the Irish supporters are at the other end of the road. Roars of Come On You Boys in Green are drowned out by corresponding Austria chants.

As they edge closer and closer to each other, both sets integrate with each other and a sea of green and red collide before breaking out into a collective Olé, Olé, Olé.
