Speaking ahead of Ireland's first leg play-off clash with Denmark in Copenhagen on Saturday night, the former Manchester United midfielder said the nation's hopes of reaching the World Cup finals in Russian Federation next year could not be in better hands.

'Honestly, we don't do too much. A bit of light training, very little, very little.

"Of course you are going to say that I have to say that because I work with him", Keane smiled. I'm not sure what I'm doing here to be honest with you!

DEA Collects Record 456 Tons Of Opioids On Take Back Day
That was 456 tons' worth of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for disposal across more than 5,300 collection sites. According to the DEA , 9,015,668 pounds, or 4,508 tons of prescription drugs have been collected since the fall of 2010.

Assistant manager Keane will not be seeking out former Manchester United teammate and Danish legend Schmeichel for a chat, however.

"Football is about the players", he said. "You want to see the players performing, the great managers try and get a reflection of themselves in the players".

"I make lots of tea". He said it himself, he held his hand up - he said he started it. I think head two pints and got a bit fearless, y'know? What else do I do?

In absence of injured players, Rohr set to make changes against Algeria
According to Rohr, the game will serve as an opportunity for the fringe players in the squad to prove their worth in the team. "It's also an opportunity to see those players who did not play so much during the qualifiers".

While Keane is eager to play down his own contribution, he did take time out to speak, at length, about how important Martin O'Neill is to this team and their current status, 180 minutes away for the World Cup finals.

He and O'Neill are set to sign a two-year contract extension for the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, but the former Sunderland and Ipswich boss does not like the suggestion that these surrounds are safer for him than club management. If players don't know by now how big the game is, we're all in trouble.

And, as the following transcript of the ensuing exchange shows, Keane didn't disappoint. I think we were in Hong Kong.

Apple augmented reality headset is finally getting serious
This was just a first step, however, which could ultimately help to bring the new headset to life with a new operating system. Though we may not see the headset for another couple of years, Apple is said to be pouring resources into its development.

He said: "It's tough being a manager out there at the moment - that's why I'm better off staying here". People might doubt that, but that's what we are here to do - we are here to win'.
