‘Jim McDonald’ AKA Charlie Lawson has issued a rallying call to Northern Ireland ahead of tonight’s crucial European Championship group game against the Ukraine.

Proud Ulsterman Charlie 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!”
