Martin O'Neill can get some great hang time when he is excited.

The Ireland manager has enjoyed some memorable moments during his tenure in charge of the Boys in Green, but the win over Wales on Monday night will be tough to top.

When Shane Long struck to beat Germany on the road to Euro 2016, the Ireland boss was captured celebrating wildly along with his assistant Roy Keane, and Irish fans can see a repeat performance in the latest footage of James McClean's crucial goal in Cardiff.

The FAI have released an alternative angle of the sumptuous strike, but the highlight of the video is definitely O'Neill leaping high in the air, followed by a bench-clearing group celebration, with Keane in the thick of it.

Watch the special moment in the video below:
