Sweden are determined to cool any Irish ambitions of a Euro 2016 scalp next Monday - for starters they’ve frozen the Cliffs of Moher!

Victor ‘Iceman’ Nilsson Lindelof, Sweden’s young Benfica defender was the man deployed with the task of freezing one of Ireland’s greatest landmarks.

He, along with team mates John Guidetti and Oscar Hiljemark are portrayed as superheroes on a mission in each of their Group E opponents’ countries - as part of a quirky video released by the main sponsor of the Swedish national team.

Starting at the National Arena in Solna they pull away, ‘Iceman’ freezes our beloved Cliffs of Moher to ice. Then former misfiring Celtic striker, donned ‘Superguidetti flies over to Italy and straightens the Leaning Tower of Pisa - by kicking a ball at it. Before Hiljemark ‘Heartman’ leaves a maypole in the middle of Brussels.

‘Next mission is France’ - Martin O’Neill’s men may have a thing or two to say about that when the two nations meet in their first game of the group on Monday.
