Assistant manager Dave Hill is hoping Cork can draw inspiration from the city´s victorious hurling team ahead of their UEFA Cup first-round clash with Slavia Prague.

Cork claimed their second consecutive All-Ireland title by beating Galway at Croke Park on Sunday and now the football team will be looking to make it a doubly successful week in the Czech Republic on Thursday night.

Hill told PA Sport: "In Cork they love their sport. They have just won the hurling title and it is very big sporting-wise. So hopefully we can do it too."
