Green and White Army: Northern Ireland fans in full voice
Green and White Army: Northern Ireland fans in full voice

Tonight is essentially Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 cup final. Lose to Ukraine and the team is in all probability out of the competition.

It is not a night for faint hearts, but the team is made of stern stuff and there is no doubt that the players will give their all for their country and the thousands of fans watching in the stadium and also back at home.

They can take great heart from their performances in the qualifying stages and also from the performance of teams such as Iceland who, on their first appearance at a major tournament, drew with fancied Portugal. So, come on Northern Ireland - the Green and White Army is behind you. How can you lose?
