The National Football Stadium at Windsor Park in Belfast will be the place to be tonight as Northern Ireland host the Republic of Ireland in the final game of the UEFA Nations League campaign.

Eileen Gleeson’s term as interim manager of the republic will end at the final whistle and what a period it has been with five wins in the book, four clean sheets and 14 goals from six different players.

Promotion has already been secured to League A of the next Nations League but there is still plenty on the line for Northern Ireland.

a 4-0 win away in Albania put them in the driving seat for a spot in the promotion play-offs but they need to match or beat whatever result Hungary get at home to Albania this evening or else they will drop from a promotion to a relegation play-off spot.

They have won two, drawn one and lost one, away to Hungary, in their campaign under manager Tanya Oxtoby and will be hoping to gain revenge for the 3-0 defeat to the Republic in front of 36,000 fans at the Aviva Stadium back in September.

Northern Ireland qualified for the Euro 2022 Championship Finals in England, providing a significant boost to participation and engagement, backed up by strong engagement with partners including Electric Ireland

Ahead of that Finals they hosted England also at the National Football Stadium and tonight is the second game to be played there for this group.

The match will be broadcast live on RTÉ2 in the Republic and on BBC2 Northern Ireland in Northern Ireland.
