The Republic of Ireland's daunting Euro 2016 draw and Louis van Gaal's Manchester United crisis share the back page billing in this weekend's Sunday World.

Irish eyes were trained on the Euro 2016 draw on Saturday night and our man John Brennan was in Paris to get all the inside gossip as Martin O'Neill's men were paired with Belgium, Italy and Sweden.

Ireland legend Paul McGrath gives us his view on the challenge facing Ireland in France next summer and he sees a silver lining in the cloud. 

As the Euro 2016 draw was unfolding, United's week from hell took a turn for the worse as they crashed to a shock defeat at Bournemouth.

Roy Curtis gives his cutting verdict on Van Gaal's Old Trafford reign, while Liverpool and Ireland goal scoring great can't resist a chuckle at United's expense.

We also get the views of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after his side's Champions League escape and all the reaction from another day of drama in the Premier League.

With the best GAA comment thrown into the mix, this is one edition of the Sunday World you will not want to miss.
