Stephen Hunt lifts the lid on his Republic of Ireland team-mates

Stephen Hunt appeared on Sky’s Soccer AM this morning and revealed all about his Irish team-mates.

The wild haired wing wizard took time out from prepping for last night’s 4-0 annihilation of Estonia to tell them the secrets ofTrap’s squad, and we now know a little too much about some of our heroes.

Best trainer: Paul McShane according to Hunt, calling him “intense” but he does also say he might just stand out because of his hair.

Worst trainer: Keiren Westwood gets this honour from Hunt, saying he just moans all day. As would we if we had to run around, or stand around, in Malahide in November.

Best mate: The Waterford man picks out roommate Andy Keogh.

Joker: McShane gets this one too, and he is apparently quite a mover on the dance floor.

Most skillful: Aiden McGeady gets the nod here. It was never going to be Darren O’Dea now was it.

Most intelligent: Hunt went for his Wolves team-mate Kevin Doyle as he is “always reading the business papers and checking the FTSE”. Shay Given gets some love for his common sense but it seems Kevin Doyle is the brains of the Irish outfit.

Most vain: Interesting stuff here as Hunt refers to the “LV Group”, a bunch of players who went to Las Vegas last year and came back with some bad tattoos. Hunt names just two though, Keogh and Liam Lawrence.

Future manager: John O’Shea is the man most likely to patrol the sidelines when he retires it seems, while Hunt volunteered himself to be his assistant. We can see O'Shea barking out orders. A future Manchester United manager maybe?

Worst dress sense: Hunt picks out Shay Given for a baseball hat he wears which the Donegal man thinks makes him invisible.

Longest in the shower: Stephen Hunt tells us that Liam Lawrence “loves himself” and therefore is the longest in the shower. Make of that what you will.
