Just like Paddy, Cristiano Ronaldo is famous for flogging his branded underpants to anyone who’ll have them, so we felt it only right that Ireland’s CR7 had a pair of his own to mark this momentous occasion as Portugal face Ireland tonight.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

Callum Robinson, Ireland’s CR7, sits at massive odds of 14/1 to outscore his sharp shooting namesake tonight after Paddy Power boosted the price on his chances of turning the tables on the record-breaking Premier League star.

And in a bid to help him on his way, Paddy’s sent him a special delivery ahead of tonight’s match. A custom-made pair of our iconic Lucky Pants were dispatched this evening, emblazoned with the special insignia ‘CRO’7’.

We all admire Ronaldo’s chiselled torso, but on behalf of the nation we really hope we don’t see him flash his abs or his branded boxers in celebration tonight.

In any case, we wanted to make sure Callum doesn’t caught short in the shorts department as he flies in the face of the world’s most famous striker. After all, it worked for Nicklas Bendtner against a Portugal side captained by Cristiano back in 2012!

Irish punters are firmly behind the Boys In Green as they get set to meet Portugal in the penultimate game in their World Cup qualifying campaign this evening.

Fans are furiously backing the Republic Of Ireland, who are thirsty for revenge after they succumbed to two late headers from Cristiano Ronaldo who plucked his country from the jaws of defeat when the sides met in Faro just a couple of months ago.

Punters are also piling on Shane Duffy, who is the most backed goalscorer in the betting – attracting three times as many bets compared to Portugal’s superstar striker.

Manchester United ace Ronaldo and his squad of soccer A-listers are getting all the credit for drawing a sell-out crowd to the Aviva’s sell out event.

But 70% of the total number of our bets taken on tonight’s clash are on Ireland to win as Irish fans throw their weight behind Stephen Kenny and co. Since this morning, they’ve been backed in from 9/1 into 17/2. COYBIG!
