O'Neill and Keane urged to carry on


Robbie Brady and Seamus Coleman have urged Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane to commit to the Republic of Ireland before the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign begins in September.

Their contracts had been due to expire at the end of Euro 2016 but it was announced before the tournament that the pair had verbally agreed a new two-year extension to remain in charge of the Republic of Ireland.

They are expected to put pen to paper on their respective deals in the near future and after progressing to the last 16 of Euro 2016 both Brady and Coleman believe the Boys in Green can kick on during the World Cup qualifying campaign.

"I think there's positives to be taken from this tournament going on now to the World Cup," said Brady

"I think they've installed something into the team, installed belief and having us organised and wanting us to play a certain way and I think that's shown here.

"To lock horns with some of the best teams in the world and give more than a good account of ourselves is a great credit to ourselves and the staff. I'll be delighted if they manage to get it done."

Coleman added: "I can't speak highly enough of both of them.

"Martin is the kind of manager that you really want to go out and do your best for him.

"He's a great motivator and a great manager. It would be great if he could stay on because we've learnt a lot from him."
