We hope Jurgen Klopp doesn't mind.
Having got too close to Shane Long for comfort at the Aviva last night, Martin Skrtel decided to get to grips with Dublin's nightlife by bringing Marek Hamsik along to Coppers.

While there, they were mixing in the club's VIP room with two lads behind our favourite Irish flag. You'll recognise the flag:
The guys behind the flag are Jack Toohey and Cian Croghan. We'll allow Jack to tell the story:
So the story goes as follows: My mate Cian Croghan and I were in Coppers after the Ireland game and heard that the Ireland team where there, so we got our flag which we got made up for France (Johnnys got you covered) out of the cloak room and went looking for the team.
We couldn't find anyone but we had the flag up in a corner of Coppers, then I noticed Ciaran Clark and David Meyler in the corner looking at the flag. They brought us over and we chilled with them for the night, they brought over Martin Skrtel and Hamsik later on in the night and we ended up in a VIP room with them all. It was an outrageous night, thought it was a dream.
Here are the pictures to prove it:
A great story. Thanks to Liam for sending us on the pictures, and we look forward to seeing the flag in France.
Coppers for not the only establishment which Skrtel and Hamsik attended on Tuesday night.
They were also in the Temple Bar.
