Dublin spoken word artists Hazel Hogan and Stephen James Smith have released a brand new poem in support of the Ireland women's national team ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier with Norway.

The Girls in Green face the first of two games in five days against the top seeds, with the side with the better record over two games likely to finish second in the group – and in line for a play-off.

Hogan and Smith got together with FAI sponsors Aviva and members of the national squad, including captain Katie McCabe and strikers Amber Barrett and Leanne Kiernan, for the video.
