The Green Army is on the march towards Cardiff as the Irish rugby team tries to secure a place in their first ever World Cup semi-final.

The Irish rugby team may have resembled the walking wounded this week after after a bruising World Cup victory over France, but fans had a spring in their step as they made their way to Cardiff for today’s quarter-final clash with Argentina. 

Injuries may have left the squad depleted but fans are hopeful of victory in the Millennium Stadium to claim a World Cup semi-final place for the first time in their history. 

With so much at stake, Argentina will be no push-overs for Ireland in what’s predicted to be a close encounter.
