After taking four points from six against Austria, one visiting journalist wanted to know exactly how Ireland boss Martin O'Neill pulled off the supposed footballing feat.

Following the Boys in Green's 1-1 draw at the Aviva Stadium tonight, an Austrian reporter posited in the post-match press conference that his country are the better footballing team, and that being the case, wondered how O'Neill managed to extract four points from the two games between the countries.

O'Neill, who is known for his cutting responses in interviews, held his hand to his head as he absorbed the somewhat cheeky question, but for once, passed up the opportunity to issue a dry retort.

Any body language experts out there will surely be able to decode O'Neill's true feelings from this video though.
