It was inevitable. After becoming the star of a sensational viral internet hit, the Northern Ireland international Will Grigg has now become the star of his own computer game.

Despite not starting at the Euros so far Grigg is among the Green and White Army's favourite - given the song.

Now Dutch gaming developers Poki have made him the star of a new - addictive - footballing game.

And you can play it here:


On Heads Arena: Euro Soccer players can try to beat Germany and see Grigg on fire while hearing the popular chant every time they score.

All proceeds from the game go to Joseph's Goal, the same charity that is benefiting from money raised by the song.

Over the past three years, the charity Joseph's Goal has raised around £300,000 to research treatments for NKH, which severely affects mental and physical development.
