Ireland fans loved Jayson Molumby gesture to crowd during France clash

Republic of Ireland fans loved the passion Jayson Molumby showed during their country's Euro 2024 qualifier with France on Monday night.

After winning a crunching tackle against the French, the West Brom midfielder signalled to the Irish supporters to keep the noise up at the Aviva Stadium.

And fans loved what they saw from the Waterford man, with one tweeting: "Molumby made for this sort of thing. Revving up the crowd - absolutely hammering down the line against Camavinga."

Someone else said: "Jay Molumby with a crunching tackle and then signals to the fans to keep the noise up. I always like the wee bite in him."

Another added: "The way Molumby shot back and got that tackle in was just brilliant."

"Molumby, what a boy," read another.

Seamus Coleman shook off a thigh injury to lead Ireland in their Euro 2024 qualifier against the World Cup finalists.

Coleman was included in one of six changes to the side beat Latvia 3-2 in a friendly last Wednesday evening as he, Gavin Bazunu, John Egan, Josh Cullen, Jason Knight and Chiedozie Ogbene came in for the injured Callum O’Dowda, Caoimhin Kelleher, Andrew Omobamidele, Will Smallbone, Alan Browne and Michael Obafemi.

That meant a first competitive start for 18-year-old Brighton striker Evan Ferguson, who opened his account against Latvia.

France boss Didier Deschamps made three changes to the side which beat the Netherlands 4-0 in Group B on Friday evening as Benjamin Pavard replaced Jules Kounde, Eduardo Camavinga took over from Aurelien Tchouameni and Olivier Giroud was drafted in for Kingsley Coman.
