Hundreds of Donegal fans have arrived in Gdansk for the crucial game which kicks off at 7.45pm.
“It feels like half of Donegal is here. Everywhere you go you meet someone. We were at the team hotel this morning and it was lovely.
“We met some of the team and they were in great form. Hopefully we can do it and keep our dream alive,” he said.
Among the other Donegal fans at the hotel were Gerry Meehan, Conor Doherty, James Barcley, Tadhg Culbert and Odhran McGowan.
Large crowds are expected in Letterkenny where a huge screen has been erected at Market Square.
Pubs across the county have reported a steady build-up to the game and are hoping a victory can spark renewed interest after a poor start.
