"I'll speak to [FAI chief] John Delaney - I've not spoken to him since we spoke about the new contract", said O'Neill.

Tottenham's Christian Eriksen fired a hat-trick as the home crowd in Dublin saw their hopes of a trip to Russian Federation 2018 end in tatters.

"I'm naturally disappointed because a couple of nights ago in Copenhagen we had fought very, very strongly", O'Neill, who cut short an interview with national broadcaster RTE, told a news conference. They were very poor goals and turned the tide.

They were hammered 5-1 by Denmark in tonight's play-off at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, having drawn the first leg 0-0.

O'Neill made two hurried substitutions at half time which completely tore apart his midfield, and instead of generating some pressure on Kasper Schmeichel's goal, it allowed Eriksen and Denmark more and more freedom.


"It's hard to rank, but we saw (in Tottenham's Champions League victory) against Real Madrid he is probably one of the best players in his position in Europe at the moment". If he doesn't then we're going to rely on the predictability of the long ball... and I don't think long-ball physical football is going to pay dividends against the Danes because they're a big strong side themselves and they can handle that.

Asked how far his free-flowing team could go at next year's tournament, Hareide said it would depend on the draw but added that the side wanted to improve and play good football.

If Denmark's first goal, an own goal by Cyrus Christie, was a bit disheartening for the Irish, Eriksen's wonder goal in the 32nd minute completely broke them. "That was the goal and aim before I started as the coach for Denmark and I am very pleased".

After a combative 0-0 in the first leg at Copenhagen, the Irish stormed the pitch to take an early lead through Shane Duffy in the 6th minute.

If we did need firing up for the game, however, then RTÉ Sport, as they often do in these situations, have provided the ideal tonic with an inspirational promo starring none other than Brendan Gleeson for the big game.
