n GREGORY Campbell secured space in parliament last week for an exhibit showcasing the Apprentice Boys of Derry. The same exhibition area recently played host to the FA Cup, but Nigel Dodds can go one better. At the Apprentice Boys stand, he recalled a recent trip to Brussels, when he managed to talk his way into an event at an upmarket hotel to catch a glimpse of the World Cup.
Hopefully, the encounter was a good omen for Northern Ireland's qualifiers.
