We don’t do things the easy way in Northern Ireland do we? I’m convinced there’s something in our DNA that says whatever we do can’t be straightforward and plain sailing, it wouldn’t be the same would it?

We like to live life on the edge, we test our nervous capacity and then when it’s all over we actually tell ourselves we enjoyed it. That was the case on Thursday night and some more in Sarajevo.

This team never fails to inspire us and gives us nights to remember. They delivered once again with a trademark Northern Ireland performance full of heart, desire and showed great pride in representing our country. That’s all the green and white army ask for and they got it in abundance from every single player.
