Video: Northern Ireland tantalising close to proving Belfast Telegraph Sports Editor Steven Beacom's Euro prediction true


Belfast Telegraph Sports Editor Steven Beacom is now tantalisingly close to being proved correct in his prediction that Northern Ireland would qualify for the European Championship finals in France next summer.

After last night's draw with Hungary at Windsor Park, Michael O'Neill and his squad now just need to win one of their last two remaining games to be sure of qualification.

"Right at the top of this campaign before it even kicked-off I was lambasted and called silly by all sorts of people for saying that Northern Ireland would qualify," said Steven.

"I think I was the only person in the country who believed that apart from Michael O'Neill and his players.

"What has happened in group F has been absolutely remarkable for Northern Ireland. They have won three games away from home, which is unheard of - and they have only last one game so far out of eight."
