In pictures: Irish fans gear up for Italy game in Poznan

The Boys in Green are preparing for the last hurrah at the European Championships in Poland. And so are the fans.

IRELAND WILL PLAY their final Euro 2012 tonight against Italy in Poznan.

Giovanni Trapattoni’s side will attempt to earn their first points of the championship and end the campaign on a bright note. Whatever happens, we’ve learned over the past fortnight that the travelling Irish supporters will win the party.

These are the scenes at 6am this morning in the Irish town, thanks to Polish photographer, Mateusz Kulik.
