Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane had a lucky escape after their vehicle was in a collision on the M50 motorway.

The incident came as Ireland's football's management team and their squad gear up for a crucial European Championship Qualifier against Scotland this weekend.

They were travelling northbound on the motorway between Blanchardstown and Finglas yesterday evening with the rest of their coaching staff, when their vehicle was in a collision.

Goalkeeping coach Seamus McDonagh and outfield coaches Steve Guppy and Steve Walford were also in the vehicle during the crash, which took place at around 6pm.

Gardai attended the scene, with AA Roadwatch reporting delays during rush hour on the busy motorway.

Hurt

The Ireland managers were examined by the team doctor but weren't seriously hurt, the FAI said last night.

The national side go into Saturday's game knowing a win is crucial in their quest for qualification for the tournament in France.

Their tough group includes world champions Germany.
