Rory McIlroy endured a pretty disappointing weekend at the US Open.
The 27-year-old golf star missed the halfway cut at Oakmont and subsequently tumbled out of the world’s top three ranked players.
But just days after his horror show in Pennsylvania, McIlroy has turned his attentions away from golf to football.
The former World No1 has jetted off to France to watch Northern Ireland take on Germany at Euro 2016.
And he’ll be hoping for the performance of a lifetime from his compatriots against the world champions if they are to stand any chance of qualifying for the last 16.
As well as having to beat Joachim Low’s side in Paris, Michael O’Neill’s men will have to hope Poland slip up against Ukraine if they are to be guaranteed a place in the knockout stages.
The Green and White squad have impressed many in their first appearance at a major finals in over 30 years.
McIlroy took to Twitter to post a picture of him as he prepares to take off on a private plane with his pals.
Notably, he was also wearing a t-shirt which featured the face of the nation’s greatest footballing talent, George Best.
The mood seems rather optimistic despite the formidable opposition they will line up against at the Parc des Princes.
