The Derry native delivered some zingers about Eamon Dunphy and Roy Keane during a Today FM event in Cork last week and showed his excellent sense of humour when asked a question by a Swedish journalist.

O'Neill was questioned about how he plans to stop Swedish powerhouse Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the Stade de France next Monday.

His response was classic. Watch below:

Sweden recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory over Wales in Stockholm on Sunday as preparations ahead of Euro 2016 continued yesterday.

Strikes from Emil Forsberg in the 40th minute, Mikael Lustig in the 57th and substitute John Guidetti three minutes from time sealed the triumph for the hosts, who open their European Championship campaign against Ireland next week.
