Martin O'Neill: Football manager or dancer?


Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill had a lot to be happy with after his side's away win over Moldova in Group D of the World Cup qualifiers.

The Boys in Green looked frustrated for a time after Igor Bugaev's calm finish cancelled out Shane Long's early goal. They needn't have worried though, as West Brom's James McClean sealed victory with a goal in the 69th minute - then another seven minutes later.

Manager O'Neill seemed pleased with his side's performance, appearing to perform dance moves on the touchline.

Just look at the sass in that cha-cha-cha.

Okay we know what you're thinking - here comes some tongue-in-cheek article trying to force dance upon a poor unsuspecting Irishman, but hear us out - it's not the first time O'Neill has appeared to have a dance on the touchline.

In fact there's a catalogue of dance moves from O'Neill. Such as...
