Michael O'Neill's men just keep on making history on football field

Editor's Viewpoint

Northern Ireland's football team will head to the European Championships in France in good heart having set a new record of 10 games without defeat.

With two more friendlies to play before the tournament, it is a remarkable achievement that could be extended by a country with a small playing population to pick from.

Much credit must go to manager Michael O'Neill, but he would be the first to admit that when any match starts success depends on the skill and mental strength of the players. They will need plenty of both in France, but they have shown they have great pride in playing for their country - and we are proud of them.
