“You listen to all the home nations and they’re all saying the same thing. I don’t know if it’s the change in qualification with three teams, it’s given a lot of smaller nations a lot of confidence that they can get to a major competition’’ ConorMclaughlin said.

Northern Ireland is positioned in the 2nd spot of group F after having collected a total of 9 points from the 4 matches that the nation has played and ConorMcluaghlin has played in every single one of those games as the young right-back has turned into a consistent and key performer for his nation.
