Martin O'Neill's Ireland career in numbers

Martin O'Neill's Ireland career in numbers

Martin O'Neill, along with his assistant Roy Keane, have parted company with the FAI by mutual agreement.

It brings an end to a five-year tenure that for the last few months has seen a string of poor performances.

Here we look at some of the numbers behind O'Neill's career as Ireland boss.

55 - O'Neill oversaw 55 games in charge of the Ireland side.

65 - The number of players used by O'Neill in his tenure as Ireland boss.

28 - The number of those players who received their first senior cap.

1 - The number of major tournaments Ireland qualified for under O'Neill (Euro 2016).

68 - Goals scored by Ireland under O'Neill.

34.55 - O'Neill's win percentage as Ireland manager. In 55 games, Ireland's record was: won 19, drew 20, lost 16. Steve Staunton (35.3%), Giovanni Trapattoni (40.6%) and Brian Kerr (54.5%) all had better statistics.

4 - Ireland have failed to score a goal in their last four games, their worst run since 1996.

4 - Four is also the total number of goals O'Neill's side have scored in 2018.

1 - O'Neill only managed one win the 2018 calendar year, a 2-1 win against the USA.

2 - The number of points O'Neill's side earned in their Nations League group. Ireland drew two and lost two in group B4.

1 - One World Champion beaten. They weren't all bad times. Shane Long's goal in the 1-0 victory over Germany will live long in the memory.
