Northern Ireland have already made their debut at the European Championships back in 2016 and even managed to reach the knockout stage of the tournament which was hosted by France.

However, with Germany and the Netherlands in their group, to see the Irish side qualifying for the EURO 2020 would certainly be a big surprise.

They won’t have an easy job though, as they would have to beat the European football giants in their direct encounters in order to book a place in next year’s championship.
