Northern Ireland fans have gone Gallic as their preparations for the Euro 2016 finals ramp up the gears.

Singer songwriter Jim Lindsay has come up with the toe-tapping fans' anthem 'We got the lingo sussed'.

"Poland Germany we don’t care... You won’t out sing us when we are over there," go the lyrics before breaking into common French phrases to help the Green and White Army get integrated into French culture.

"Que un comment ça va - What aboute you," chant the fans.

"e suis votre homme - I’m your man.

"We’ve got the lingo sussed we’ll soon be on the bus singing wherever we go.

"It’s our wee country It’s our wee team

"With Michael O’Neill we’re living the dream, when you believe dreams can come true keep believing the whole way through."
