Republic of Ireland supporters have added Denmark to their ever-growing list of countries who would be happy to see the 'Boys In Green' back for a match in the future as the Copenhagen police have given special praise to the Irish fans who made the trip to Copenhagen this weekend.
Irish supporters stole the show in France last year during Euro 2016 with their general good will and the jovial atmosphere that they created when they helped change an elderly French couple's tyre, and serenading a nun on a train with an 'Our Father' chant was the particular highlight.
Yesterday footage emerged of the supporters camped outside the world famous lingerie store Victorias Secret in Copenhagen equipped with cans, and tri-colours as they cheered customers leaving the store.
Hours after Ireland's nil all draw with Denmark, the Copenhagen Police tweeted the following:
Set fra et politimæssigt synspunkt er Irland velkommen igen for at spille i Parken. Ingen registrerede episoder med fodboldfans i nattelivet. Tak for det. #politidk

From a police point of view, Ireland is welcome to play here again. No registered incidents regarding fans all night. Thank you.
If this does not make you proud to be Irish well then, nothing will. The supporters travel all over the globe to watch the Irish team every year and rarely if ever do we receive reports of trouble with the supporters, unlike our neighbours across the pond as Oliver Holt of the Daily Mail poignantly pointed out when he was in Copenhagen yesterday.
It is a novelty for an Englishman abroad in international week to see travelling fans congregating in numbers in a foreign city without giving the impression they wish to subject it to colonial rule.

The supporters will be in full voice on Tuesday night at the Aviva stadium as nothing less than a victory will do if Ireland are to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 2002 when Mick McCarthy's side were knocked out in the round of 16 by Spain on penalties.
