Northern Ireland maanger Michael O'Neill has outlined his belief that there is even more to come from his players less than two weeks before they play in the Euro 2016 finals.

O'Neill and his 23-man squad fly from Belfast to Austria today for a training camp, which will be followed by a weekend friendly in Slovakia and then a trip to France for the country's first major tournament in 30 years.

Northern Ireland leave on the back of a record 11-match unbeaten run and O'Neill has backed then to continue doing the nation proud.

"I still think there is more in this squad," he said.

"We should celebrate the fact that we are going to this tournament but having done that we have to believe we can have an impact and go beyond the group stages.

"We know it won't be easy and that it will be a massive challenge but I believe we can meet that challenge."
