The Opposition Manager - Wales VS Ireland

Opposition manager: Wales vs Republic of Ireland

 

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND: MARTIN O’NEILL

The highlights of Northern Irish international O’Neill’s playing career came under Brian Clough at Nottingham Forest, winning the 1977/78 English title and successive European Cups in 1979 and 1980.
After injury ended O’Neill’s playing days, he entered management with non-league Grantham, Shepshed and Wycombe, whom he led into the Football League for the first time in 1993 and to a further promotion the following year.

He left Wycombe for Norwich in June 1995 but within six months O’Neill moved to Leicester, who he guided into the Premier League, winning the 1997 and 2000 League Cups to earn two UEFA Cup campaigns.

O’Neill was appointed by Celtic in 2000 and in five years at the helm he delivered three league titles, three Scottish Cups and one Scottish League Cup. He also led the Bhoys to the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.

He returned to the Premier League and had spells with Aston Villa and Sunderland, before being appointed as Republic of Ireland manager in November 2013.

O’Neill led the nation to Euro 2016 via a play-off win against Bosnia & Herzegovina. His side reached the Round of 16 before being eliminated by hosts and eventual finalists France.
