It was all fun and memes for Patrice Evra, after France’s 2-1 win over Ireland at Euro 2016.

A still from the match, showing Evra in an unusual half squat position, inspired people everywhere with too much time on their hands to take to photoshop.

The Juventus full-back showed he has a sense of humour, sharing some of the most creative efforts via his Instagram account.

France came from behind in the last 16 encounter in Lyon with two goals from Antoine Griezmann. Robbie Brady had given Ireland the lead with a penalty in the second minute after a clumsy challenge from Paul Pogba.

Evra, now 35, completed the full 90 minutes.

But he also became an internet sensation in the process.

His favourite memes included…

A Rafiki impression...
