Ireland managed only a draw against Sweden on Monday thanks to a late own goal, but the Irish fans were still in good spirits on Tuesday. 

A few fans in France for the tournament were riding a train on Monday when a nun walked through their car. They decided the only logical thing to do was recite the “Our Father” as if it were a soccer chant. 

Watch: Ireland, Sweden fans come together to sing ‘Dancing Queen’

It’s pretty catchy, but I don’t think the pope will be incorporating this as part of the mass any time soon.
