Charlie 'Big Jim McDonald' Lawson 'no more dreaming' rallying call for Northern Ireland v Ukraine - so it is

Charlie Lawson - made famous as Coronation Street's Big Jim McDonald - has made a stirring rallying call to the Northern Ireland team ahead of their crucial Ukraine Euro 2016 clash.

Lawson took to Twitter to offer his own unique brand of team talk ahead of the Lyon clash.

"No More dreaming," he says.

"One nil, two nil, I don't care, we need a win.

"Stiffen up the sinews, summon the blood and come on Northern Ireland.

"And for all you in the Green and White Army - the best fans in the world - come on Northern Ireland!"
