This is what heroes do.

We don’t know how you watched the final minutes of Ireland’s 1-0 win over Germany but, if you were anything like us, it may have been behind their hands (or the couch).

Tom Hendley and his seven-year-old son, Joe, were right in the mix, at the Aviva Stadium, last night and they roared the boys in green along, through every nail-biting minute.

One of the best bits of this superb piece of fan footage is the heroic hold-up play down by the corner flag.

The Stoke man was a menace to the Germans and helped chew down the final minutes, to a crescendo of cheers.

Walters, being the comedic legend that he is, was quick off the mark to contact his former Stoke City teammate, Robert Huth.
