Bring on England

Bold Northern Ireland stars are dreaming of repeating history when the Euro 2012 qualifying draw is made in Warsaw today.

Grant McCann, Warren Feeney and Niall McGinn are all desperate to be paired with mighty England.

Northern Ireland stunned Sven Goran Eriksson’s men at Windsor Park five years ago as David Healy’s sensational winner sealed an unforgettable victory.

Now our Northern Ireland aces are hungry to repeat the dose by humbling Rooney and co once again.

Celtic ace McGinn insisted last night: “I’d really love us to be in the same group as England. It would be awesome taking on so many star names and maybe even have a chance of playing at Wembley.”

McCann added: “I missed out last time so I want to experience the feeling of playing against England.”

And Feeney admitted: “I want England and I’d fancy us to beat them again. The fans would love it.”
