Dam Busters March shames NI supporters

Published 27/06/2016

All I have heard since the Northern Ireland v Germany game is how well the supporters behaved.

But did anyone notice or hear the fans sing or hum The Dam Busters March during the game?

I would like to know what relevance the fans have to this piece of music other than it's the theme tune from the film The Dam Busters about the bombing of German dams in the Second World War.

If I am correct in my assumption, then I find it sickening that football fans would use this to antagonise the German football team.
