Last night’s victory over Greece at Windsor Park will be celebrated throughout Northern Ireland for years to come.
Although Northern Ireland have been to three World Cups in Sweden 1958, Spain 1982 and Mexico 1986, this is the first time they have ever qualified for the finals of the European Championships.
The Green and White Army can now begin to plan their holidays for France in June next year and look forward to Michael O’Neill’s squad writing another chapter in Northern Ireland’s footballing history.
Congratulations to O’Neill and his team.
