Northern Ireland go into the tournament on the back of a 12 game unbeaten run (the longest of any team at Euro 2016) and despite being drawn in an extremely tough group Michael O’Neill’s charges will fear nobody in France. It all starts today against Poland in the Allianz Rivera, Nice followed by a visit to the brand new stadium Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon and the ‘Green and White Army’ will most certainly make their presence felt. With third position in the group potentially being able to secure a place in the knockout phase even by the time they storm the gates at the Parc Des Princes in Paris, when they take on World champions Germany, a place in the last 16 may well be in their own hands. Predictions as below.
Turkey 1 Croatia 1
Poland 2 Northern Ireland 1
Germany 2 Ukraine 0
