Michael O’Neill fields his strongest team despite a long injury list

IT could be a tough evening at Windsor Park as Northern Ireland line out against Portugal in this Group F World Cup qualifier.

Manager Michael O’Neill has fielded what he believes is his strongest team despite a host of cry offs through injury.

But his team have taken heart from last month’s 1-0 win over Russia at home.

And the win even shocked the Portuguese who are not taking Northern Ireland for granted anymore.

All eyes will be on Ronaldo as the £80 million player runs out on the south Belfast pitch for probably the last glimpse of him by home fans.

 

NORTHERN IRELAND TEAM:  Carroll, Hodson, Ferguson, McAuley, Evans, McGinn, Davis, Paterson, Brunt, Norwood and Ward.

Portugal team: Patricio, Alves, Pepe, Miguel, Coentrao, Ronaldo, Moutinho, Vieirinha, Meireles, Periera and Postiga.
