Martin O'Neill signs new Republic of Ireland contract until Euro 2020

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill has signed a contract extension until 2020, alongside his backroom staff.

O'Neill, 65, and assistant Roy Keane signed new contracts until the end of the 2018 World Cup in 2016, but the manager and his staff have pen to paper on extended deals.

O'Neill led Ireland to the round of 16 at Euro 2016 and guided the side to November's World Cup playoffs but saw them lose 5-1 on aggregate to Denmark.

He replaced Giovanni Trapattoni as Republic manager in 2013 and will now be in charge for the Euro 2020 campaign.
