Northern Ireland Take On Switzerland In World Cup Play-Off


The Northern Ireland soccer team are due to play Switzerland tonight in their World Cup Play-Off.

The game which kicks off in the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park, is the first leg of their play-off as the team will travel to Basel for the second round of the competition on Sunday.

Josh Magennis goes into the tie with three goals to his name from the last four games for his side, which included a massive effort against current world title holders, Germany.

The 27-year-old has credited his team-mates for their constant support which has led him to have more confidence in his game.

The star striker is calling on Northern Ireland fans to come out in droves to support the team as he claims qualifying for the World Cup 2018 in Russia would be ‘absolutely massive’.

“Just take it all in. Come and enjoy yourselves, and as usual make as much noise as you can and make it an absolute fortress like you always have done,” Magennis shared.
