It's ridiculous to think the Irish FA could only arrange one warm-up game for the Northern Ireland women’s team ahead of next month’s European Championships when manager Kenny Shiels would have preferred more.

On the eve of that match in Belgium, it was interesting to note that Shiels said the finals are coming “too soon” for his team “in terms of being ready”.
