Watch: Martin O'Neill's contender for most awkward football interview ever

By Gareth Hanna

Martin O'Neill had an awkward exchange with RTE reporter Tony O'Donoghue after the Republic of Ireland's 1-1 draw in Georgia.

Shane Duffy had given O'Neill's side a fourth minute lead but an equaliser by Valeri Qazaishvili later in the first half earned only Georgia's fourth point of the campaign and dented Ireland's qualification hopes.

O'Donoghue pointed out that surrendering posession easily is an issue for Ireland. O'Neill replied: "We gave the ball away, we didn't keep it well enough, you're right." When asked if there was a quick fix for Tuesday's game in terms of personnel, an exasperated looking O'Neill said: "I don't think there's a quick fix to it."

He went on to say that he did know why a few important players weren't on their games in Georgia. "Are you going to share that with us?" ventured O'Donaghue. "Well there's no point. Why would I want to share it with you," came the rebuttal.

It's definitely an interesting an honest exchange from two football men. Have a look right here:
