Martin McGuinness draws 'favourites' Northern Ireland in Euro 2016 office sweepstake

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has drawn Northern Ireland in his office sweep.

The deputy First Minister tweeted his sweepstake revealing his disbelief that he'll be backing the Green and White Army in France.

"Can you believe it !!!," he tweeted.

"In the office draw just drew the favourites for the European Championship !!!"

For the 2014 World Cup the MLA was "gobsmacked" to draw England for the tournament.

Although at the time he said he would be hoping for the “Orange men from Holland win.”
