“My cousin was explaining to me who scored. To be honest it’s just a normal experience of football for me. I join in with the singing and shouting and celebrate like anybody else does. I can see bits of the game up close. But what I can’t see clearly isn’t hard to work out what’s going on.

“And I’ve always got my cousin or a friend there to tell me about it as well.”

Mike soon tweeted the video of him and his cousin, Ste, and loads of nice comments followed.

Kearney soon took to Twitter to express his delight at the comments he had received.

“Nice to read all comments about the video.” Mike said on Twitter. “It’s my cousin telling me it was mo who scored. I can see a little bit but not great. Didn’t know the camera got us thanks for posting.”
