Even the most optimistic members of the Green and White Army will concede that gaining automatic qualification for Euro 2020 is, shall we say, unlikely for Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland has been the losses of a tough group containing both Germany and the Netherlands. They fell out of the automatic spots in October after an agonizing late downfall to the Netherlands and face a tough task to get back in.

Realistically, to qualify, Michael O’Neill’s men probably need to win their final two fixtures. Except that the final two fixtures include a home game against the Netherlands and another heavyweight clash against.

The Germans in their own backyard. Having lost to both sides in the first round of fixtures, there’s nothing suggesting that Northern Ireland can do so this time around. With Germany and the Netherlands both on 15 points.

Northern Ireland in third place with 12 points one win against both teams would leave them relying on an improbable slip from Germany at home to Belarus or Holland against Estonia. Which is very unlikely in the circumstances?

Although they finished bottom of their Nations League group, there is still a lifeline to feature in the playoffs as a result of teams from the top league having qualified automatically. Manager O’Neill has also left to join Stoke, but he will still take charge of the final qualifiers as well as any potential play-offs.

Whether this could prove to be a good move for Northern Ireland based on current circumstances would be known in due time. Leicester City star and defender for the Northern Ireland team did claim he was a bit confused with the whole managerial situation.
