Republic of Ireland manager has delighted in the light-hearted antics of Irish supporters in the past and was at it again today.

In his pre-game press conference ahead of tomorrow's pivotal World Cup play-off second leg against Denmark at the Aviva Stadium, O'Neill was asked if he has viewed footage of fans cheering customers as they left a Victoria's Secret store in Copenhagen at the weekend.

He said: "Actually, I made that video" to laughter from the watching media.

Irish fans have been praised for their impeccable conduct in Copenhagen after the local police confirmed that there were zero incidents involving supporters over the weekend.

A win tomorrow night and those fans will be looking forward to travelling to Russia next summer for the World Cup.
