CNN —A dance tune with two simple instructions and involving thousands of bouncing, orange-clad soccer fans has gone viral at this year’s European Championships. Prompted by the song, fans link arms and jump to the left. It might sound straightforward enough, but the sight of thousands of fans dressed in orange dancing and singing in unison while walking to the game has been something to behold at Euro 2024. Ahead of the Netherlands’ group game against France, Kemps went to Leipzig to help entertain the Dutch fans before the match started. While Dutch people have sung and danced to the song for years, Kemps says fans of Dutch soccer started adopting it after the women’s team won the European Championship in 2017.

Banks lend less than they used to, which has led to many smaller, alternative credit providers springing up to provide alternatives.

FAI did not make formal contract offer to Pauw, says chief exec

Following its review, the FAI said it would not renew her contract, which expired at the end of last month. Pauw said on Aug. 31 that she had begun talks with the FAI over a new contract in March and that it had "committed to issuing an offer" before reconsidering their position. "At no point was a contract offer ever presented to Vera," chief executive Hill told reporters on Thursday. "Conversations did not progress to a point where a formal offer was made to Vera ... and in advance of the World Cup, we decided to pause discussions." "We believed it was not appropriate to offer a new contract at this point."

Sept 1 (Reuters) - Former Ireland coach Vera Pauw said executives from the country's football association (FAI) undermined her position and interfered in football matters during the Women's World Cup. Dutch coach Pauw led Ireland to their first major tournament this year in Australia and New Zealand, where they exited in the group stage. Eileen Gleeson, FAI's head of women and girls' football, was appointed interim head coach. "Following the article ... which included allegations I absolutely refute, I believe the FAI made some major mistakes by directly overruling the tasks of the coach," Pauw said on Thursday in a statement cited by the Irish Times. "I believe that the review process which the association has carried out was flawed and that the outcome was pre-determined," Pauw added.

July 24 (Reuters) - Ireland coach Vera Pauw said that she expects Louise Quinn to be fit for her side's World Cup Group B clash with Canada on Wednesday as the defensive lynchpin continues to recover from a knock picked up in their 1-0 defeat by Australia. The 33-year-old centre-back arrived in Perth wearing a protective boot on her left foot, and she began Monday's training session separate from the rest of the squad as Pauw prepared them for the clash with Canada. "We need to see how that goes, but we are confident she can play," Pauw told Ireland's RTE in an TV interview. "We were really hoping for this result and that's how it came out, so the group is open again and there's everything to play for," she said.

Ireland clinched their World Cup berth with a nerve-jangling victory over Scotland in a playoff at Hampden Park. People in Ireland often reference the men's World Cup debut in Italy in 1990, McCabe said. She hopes people back home will recall the women's debut in similar fashion, that it will be their "Italia '90." "It's the first time that we at this world stage which is massive, the way we've come here is something to be really, really proud of.

CNN —A pre-Women’s World Cup friendly between the Republic of Ireland and Colombia was abandoned after it was deemed “overly physical,” the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) said in a statement. The behind-closed-doors match in Brisbane, Australia ended after 20 minutes, the FAI said on Friday, with the team proceeding to take part in a full training session instead. “The game, which was held in Meakin Park, Brisbane, became overly physical and it was decided, following consultation with the match officials, to end the game,” the FAI said, per Reuters. One of Ireland’s key players, midfielder Denise O’Sullivan, had an x-ray and scans on an injury sustained during the friendly. Ireland begins its campaign against Australia on the opening day, while Colombia’s first match is against South Korea on July 25.

“Most Irish nationalists, most Irish Catholics in Northern Ireland regarded it as being not for them. “[It is a] sort of a badge, an emblem or totem of British imperialism, British colonialism.”‘The Troubles’McClean is one such dissenting voice. He was born and raised in Derry, a small town in Northern Ireland bordering the Republic. "The Troubles" split communities in Northern Ireland who still feel the affects more than 20 years later. At the time, he questioned the Northern Irish football team’s decision to play “God Save the Queen” as its national anthem.
