McNair hopes Holland take Northern Ireland lightly

8 October 2019

Paddy McNair is hoping Holland underestimate Northern Ireland in their crunch Euro 2020 qualifier in Rotterdam on Thursday.

Northern Ireland need to pick up points on the road in order to keep their dreams of reaching next summer’s finals alive, but few will be backing them to come out on top at De Kuip.

Michael O’Neill’s men came through their first four qualifiers, home and away to Belarus and Estonia with 12 points from 12, but as the difficulty level took a step up they suffered their first setback last month with a 2-0 defeat to Germany at Windsor Park.
