West Brom defender Evans: O'Neill would be great for Scotland, but

Michael O'Neill Manager of Northern Ireland looks dejected following the FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier Play-Off Second Leg between Switzerland and Northern Ireland at St. Jakob Park

Trials of VARs are under way in several countries and Federation Internationale de Football Association has been using it in some of its tournaments, including the Club World Cup and recent Under-17 World Cup.

O'Neill now earns £500,000 a year with the Irish FA and, according to the Telegraph, Scotland are set to formally approach the Ballymena man about succeeding Gordon Strachan. O'Neill, who lives in Edinburgh, is well-known to officials at the Scottish FA and is their first choice for the job. The SFA want to include Austin MacPhee, the Northern Ireland assistant, on the backroom team if they appoint O'Neill.

O'Neill is under contract at the IFA until 2020 with a compensation clause of £750,000.

The lure of replacing Strachan and returning Scotland to a major European competition could also prove tempting but there are concerns that O'Neill's rising reputation may have put him out of their price range. However, O'Neill has family in Chicago and is keen on coaching in the States.

David added: "As a manager, he's unbelievable, we all love him and every single player plays for him".

Meanwhile, Switzerland held off Northern Ireland to also seal a place at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation with a 0-0 second-leg draw that secured a 1-0 aggregate play-off victory.Vladimir Petkovic's side wasted numerous first-half chances as the Northern Irish stayed in the tie, but Ricardo Rodriguez's controversial first-leg penalty in Belfast proved enough for the Swiss to reach their fourth consecutive World Cup.

"Other nations and clubs will probably take an interest in him because of the success we have had, but from a selfish point of view we really want to keep him". He's so inspirational, he's very tactical. "Even the other night, we had just got off the plane and were on the bus on the way to the hotel". "It's unfortunate that we were not more efficient because it would have been easier".

"Everyone said it was nearly done, but against teams like that it's a fight". "If it wasn't for the penalty we'd be playing extra time".

Michael McGovern, Northern Ireland's goalkeeper, concurred: "Michael's stock is so high at the minute". "I'm very proud that we have managed to qualify for the whole country". "He has a bit of time and decisions to make". Chris Brunt, however, admitted he was considering whether to continue and the 38-year-old Aaron Hughes, who made his 109th appearance against Switzerland, may also retire. "It was very hard to play with the pitch and our opponents", Stoke City winger Shaqiri said.
