“The mental aspect of these games is very difficult,” O’Neill said.

I’m delighted with the way we were able to change the game in the second half because it’s not easy at the end of a long season. We have a lot of players who are without clubs or have not played a lot of minutes. Some of them were played here in June for their country and do a very good performance.

In addition, he said, I’m happy for Conor Washington because he had a very difficult season and did not play a lot of football in the first team. But he showed what it’s all about tonight.

“Josh has had a difficult situation at Bolton but he has come in and again gets on the score-sheet. Jordan Jones also made a great difference and helped drag the boys through.”

“We probably had too many forward players on the pitch at the end of the game after the substitutions but we had to get some energy into the side,” O’Neill.

A draw would have been of no use to us and I felt we had to try to win it, so we took our place in the match, created many opportunities and deserved to win the match.

I felt we started the game properly and we looked in control, but we had trouble playing them from time to time.

Then, when the match opened in the second half, it suited us a bit more and we managed to convince our wide players to play and put the player runners behind them.

Chance for England to make a statement in the Euro Cup 2020

England may not wipe out 53 years of hurt here in Portugal, as it prepares to start its campaign in the first UEFA Nations League finals. But this is an opportunity for the manager Gareth Southgate and his players to make a powerful statement before the Euro Cup 2020.

And while this competition is in its infancy, it has already proved vital to Southgate and England that will offer even more benefits if they can fly with the trophy.

The tournament has had its critics, some considering it a useless intrusion at the end of a busy season, with Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp calling it “the most senseless competition” in the football world.

No team or group of players has had their trust damaged by raising a trophy. This will serve to reinforce the growing confidence and stature of Southgate and England.

“We know the batting order is the World Cup then the Euros but now we have a new competition and we want to be in the habit of starting to win things,” said Southgate.

The time has come for us to try to win trophies and this is a great opportunity to show how much we are progressing as a team. It’s remarkable that we have made progress, but we still have a long way to go.

“It would be huge for all of us in England to start winning trophies and winning big matches – that’s the habit we want and the expectation we want to create.”

Northern Ireland Euro Cup 2020 the qualifying campaign

You know O’Neill says Northern Ireland’s Euro 2020 draw possibly the worst we could have got. In light of that drama, which Michael O’Neill left showing on a brave face in front of a camera but no doubt wishing he could restart his saved game, it would assume that NI’s best hope of qualification for the tournament comes via the play-offs.

Chances for Northern Ireland of making the Euro 2020 play-offs

In total teams, only 20 teams “two from each group” will qualify for Euro 2020 via the traditional qualification process automatically. So, that leaves four places to be won via the play-offs.

In all that team, only 16 teams will qualify in the play-offs, wonderfully four from each of the four Nations Leagues A, B, C and D. There will be four isolated play-off systems, one to perform each league structure with one final place for each.

And that system will be made up of two single-legged semi-finals, to be played at home of the higher-ranked side, and at last single-legged final, for which a draw will be made to decide home benefit. The playoffs will take place on 26 – 31 March 2020.

Unluckily for Northern Ireland, the play-off places are hand over based on the performances of UEFA Nations League. Unnecessary to say, NI’s four successive defeats in the debut edition of ‘the most senseless competition in the world’ in 2018, are set to prove an unwelcome preventive. Fear not, hope springs endless and the door could yet be prised open.

The play-off spots go, all the things being equal, for the group winners. Anyhow, if any of those secure qualification through the standard way, their play-off place will be handed down like to grow faster. The place will go, as a first preference, to the next team in highest ranked in the Nations League rankings.

Because Northern Ireland was the bad-performing League B team, they were ranked 24th. That will not change, regardless of their Euro 2020 qualifying performance. The Republic is little better off on ranked 23rd.

In order to make it into the play-offs League B, Northern Ireland would need eight of the 11 teams onward of them in the League B rankings to qualify automatically.

Even if that does not happen, Northern Ireland could still make it into a play-off system outside of their own Nations League.
