RTE have got us in the mood for tomorrow's big game with superb promo.

Starring Scot, one time Dublin resident, and still Bohs fan, Irvine Welsh, the ad is a play on the famous opening sequence from the film of the novellist's book Trainspotting.

With a few subtle word changes, and lots of great clips from Irish and Scottish teams past and present this is right up there with the best promos RTE Sport have ever done, and that is some statement.

Roll on Saturday at 5pm.
