The funniest and best football-related tweets, featuring every Chelsea fan’s reaction to Eden Hazard’s transfer, Canada’s dancing antic on the bus, and Colin Farrell’s connection to France ’98.
So. Much. International. Football.
It’s getting a bit ridiculous at this point. There are three major tournaments taking place in men’s and women’s football right now, with the African Cup of Nations still to come. And the League of Ireland is running at the moment. I’m suffering from soccer overload as I type this.
But hey, with football taking place at all hours of the day, it just means there’s more material for memes and hilarious tweets, so I won’t complain any longer.
Anybody else miss Mousa Dembele doing bits?

Ever wonder how Colin Farrell got his big break in acting? Well this wasn’t it.
The opening titles of RTE's World Cup 98 coverage was pretty forgettable, but it did feature a young jobbing actor at the time.
Amazingly, I couldn't find anything at all about this online given the internets love for a bit of 'before they were famous'. pic.twitter.com/Xl4Ix1qr9v

This was an outstanding promo for this week’s Dublin Derby, in which Bohemians defeated Shamrock Rovers.
It's Bohs v Rovers.
It's Dublin in the rain.
