VIDEO: David Meyler sings 'Follow Me' at his Republic of Ireland initiation

Great song choice, but did Meyler have the vocals to pull off the Uncle Kracker hit after dinner last night? Watch and see.

We’ll never forget poor Shane Duffy’s effort at “Buttercup” but last night it was the turn of Sunderland midfielder David Meyler who impressed us with a leftfield choice in Uncle Kracker’s 2001 classic “Follow Me”.
