Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill hopes that Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has a night to forget on his 100th cap for his country.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has admitted that he would be "happy" for Cristiano Ronaldo's 100th cap for Portugal to be ruined.

The Real Madrid star will reach the international feat in tonight's 2014 World Cup qualifier against the Irish side but O'Neill is hoping that it will not be a night to remember for the winger.

"I would be happy if he has a really poor game and he is remembered for having a bad night on his 100th cap," said O'Neill.

Ireland have snatched one point from a possible six in Group F.
