Norway v Northern Ireland preview: Michael O'Neill may risk player bans

Příspěvekod lensmall002 » 07 říj 2017, 18:44


Northern Ireland could fieldSBOBET six players who are one card away from suspension when they look to make sure of a World Cup Qualifying play-off place against Norway on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.

With the eight best runners-up from the nine groups securing a play-off spot, Michael O'Neill's men are well positioned, despite a 3-1 defeat to Germany on Thursday that ended their four-year unbeaten home streak.

Should Bosnia-Herzegovina fail to beat Belgium and Cyprus avoid defeat to Greece on Saturday, Northern Ireland will secure one of the eight places before they take on Norway.

If results go against them, Northern Ireland will need a positive result in Oslo to guarantee a place. That would mean O'Neill may risk the likes of Steven Davis and Jonny Evans, who are both a game away from suspension, in order to get the result they need.

"There is a real importance to the fact SBOBET that we make sure of the result in Norway because obviously we want to try and get three points, and we certainly want to make sure we're not beaten," said O'Neill. "Equally, we can't allow ourselves to field an inexperienced team and be beaten and then suddenly lose out on goal difference."

Northern Ireland's only two defeats in Group C have been against SBOBETGermany and they beat Norway 2-0 in the reverse fixture.

Norway should come into the fixture with confidence, though, having beaten San Marino 8-0 in their last match.

If Northern Ireland's play-off place is secured, O'Neill may make changes in a bid to avoid suspensions.

Along with Evans and Davis, four other players - Corry Evans, Josh Magennis, Oliver Norwood and Stuart Dallas - are one booking away from a ban.
