Northern Ireland

Chances Of Qualification For The European Championships

Northern Ireland can be a tough side to play, especially when the opposition is playing away from home, and it is somewhat surprising that they have never qualified for a European Championships Finals as they have often performed with credit. It is also worth noting that Northern Irish striker David Healy holds the record for the amount of goals scored by any player (not just Northern Irish players) in a European Championships Qualifying campaign (for Euro 2008).

From 2016 onwards there will be 24 teams in the European Championships Finals rather than 16 and this could provide Northern Ireland with a very realistic chance of qualification for a major internationa tournament.
