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.
