Northern Ireland face a tricky test in the first match of their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign as they travel to Hungary. However, manager Michael O’Neill knows that a result here will give them an excellent chance of progressing.
The match with Hungary represents one of O’Neill’s tougher challenges in a very open group. There is no major European superpower in this group, with Greece the top seeds, and with two of the six teams automatically qualifying for the finals, there will be no better opportunity for Northern Ireland to reach a major finals.
They will though have to being their campaign without MK Dons midfielder Ben Reeves and Hull City defender Alex Bruce, who were both force to withdraw from the squad, the former due to injury, with the latter’s wife due to give birth.
Meanwhile, Stuart Dallas and Ryan McLaughlin withdrew from the squad through injury earlier this week. Nonetheless O’Neill has insisted that a top-three place in Group F and potential qualification for Euro 2016 is a feasible target.
“The fact that three teams could qualify from a group makes it all the more exciting and we are determined to gain some momentum and give it a real go,” said O’Neill. We’re not in a very glamorous group and it’ll be tough to get in the top three but it’s not beyond us.”
