With pride intact and heads held high, let's get our World Cup qualifying campaign up and running with a win against the Bulgarians at Windsor Park on Wednesday night.

Everyone was hoping for a miracle in Thursday night's opener against Italy in Parma, but the reality is that the Italians just don't do defeat at home - especially in the World Cup.

They are a good side, I've watched them a lot. They press really well, but we really improved in the second half and were definitely worth a goal.
