Watch: God Save The Queen Widely Booed At The Aviva

Ireland Northern Ireland Anthem

Tonight’s international football friendly between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland has got off to a rather unsavoury start as the anthem, God Save The Queen, was widely booed by the crowd in the Aviva Stadium.ย 

Of course, fixtures between these sides are always going to carry that extra bit of edge and potential for animosity between both sets of supporters but the reaction to the booing has not gone down well on social media.

With it being 2018 and with the superb matchday programme showing John Giles and George Best with their arms around each other, you may be forgiven for thinking that some respect would be shown between both sets of supporters.

However, that was not the case as the Northern Ireland anthem was widely booed.

Check it out below for yourself.
