Footage of a French amateur side celebrating wildly after drawing Ligue 1 champions PSG in the Coupe de France has gone viral online.

The video shows the group of players who compete in the sixth tier of French football gathered together in a room while they await the draw for the round of 64.

After being called out first, anticipation grows as to who they will be paired with, and the room erupts when the team discover they will be playing PSG.

The US Revel players can be seen hugging and jumping on each other, before they start singing what appears to be a club song, with some members of the team climbing on chairs to join in.

Things briefly settle down, but the players decide they’re not finished yet and another song breaks out, while others can be seen banging on a table in excitement.

The near-two minute video has gone down a storm on social media, with fans delighted that the amateur club will get their moment in the spotlight against Kylian Mbappe and co.

‘It is magic,’ one fan wrote as they summed up US Revel’s dream draw.

‘This is what football is all about. Brilliant stuff,’ another supporter added.

‘I love this! Passion beats everything,’ said one fan.

Meanwhile, another fan pointed out that this will be a story for each of the players to tell for years to come.

‘In 2063, some will tell their grandkids about this game,’ they posted.

Not everyone gave their full backing to the players’ celebrations, though, as it was pointed out that US Revel’s cup run is almost certainly going to be brought to an end by Luis Enrique’s side when they play each other.

‘Why are they happy? They are Eliminated already,’ they claimed.

The Coupe de France is French football’s main cup competition and has an astonishing 14 rounds, although the 18 Ligue 1 sides do not enter until the ninth round – the round of 64.

US Revel are now set to host PSG with a place in the last 32 on the line on January 7.
