Leeds fans react on Twitter to Stuart Dallas' Northern Ireland display

Leeds United's Stuart Dallas will star at Euro 2016.

Championship side Leeds United will have a representative at Euro 2016 after winger Stuart Dallas helped his nation qualify for next summer's finals in France.

Northern Ireland beat Greece 2-0 to secure their place at an expanded 24-team finals next summer.

Leeds even sent their congratulations to the midfielder via their official twitter account.

Dallas was not just along for the ride last night, he played a key part in Northern Ireland's victory, providing the assist for Steven Davis' opening goal, which set them on the course to victory.

It is the first time Northern Ireland have qualified for a major tournament finals since the 1982 World Cup. They could face England who have already qualified, while Republic of Ireland and Wales also have a chance to qualify, although Scotland's dream is over.

Dallas has not enjoyed the same success for new side Leeds United this season since signing from Brentford, but if he can bring the feel good factor from his international exploits back to Elland Road, then he could play a part in turning their form around.

He has already won over supporters, who took to social media to praise his display against the Greeks...
