Euro 2016: Michael Owen predicts Northern Ireland will finish bottom of group

Former footballer Michael Owen has predicted Northern Ireland will finish bottom of their group at Euro 2016.

The commentator and international ambassador for Liverpool Football Club posted a video on Twitter on Monday afternoon with the message: "Sorry Northern Ireland."

Twitter users were quick to respond with one saying: "if your prediction is anything like your commentating , then Northern Ireland will be ok. "

Northern Ireland fans pointed out the team's run of good form - they go into Euro 2016 on the back of a record 12-match unbeaten run after drawing away to fellow finalists Slovakia in Trnava. Others pointed to the fact that striker Will Grigg is ‘on fire’.
