Not a major surprise!
Northern Ireland manager Nigel Worthington is to step down from his position after Tuesday night’s final Euro 2012 qualifier against Italy.
Worthington has been the subject of criticism from supporters following a poor qualifying campaign.
The former Norwich City boss has been in charge for four-and-a-half years but has failed to secure qualification for any of the major finals.
Worthington succeeded Lawrie Sanchez, who left to manage Fulham in 2007.

Not a huge surprise this one. The pressure has been on Worthington to quit for quite some time and his record as boss of Northern Ireland is pretty poor to say the least.
The former left back managed just nine wins, and 18 defeats, during his four years in the post and the Euro 2012 campaign has resulted in just two wins out of nine matches, as well as an embarrassing draw in the Faroe Islands.
Among the favourites to take over from Worthington are former boss Lawrie Sanchez, Martin O’Neill and Iain Dowie.
