Cyprus test for Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland will travel to Cyprus for a friendly on March 5.

Michael O'Neill has yet to win a friendly since taking over the national side at the start of 2012 and will be hoping a fixture against a team ranked 125th on the world - 35 spots lower than Northern Ireland - provides a perfect chance.

The match will take place at Nicosia's GSP Stadium, with the Irish Football Association hopeful that work will have started on redeveloping Windsor Park by then.
