Usually when we train there are two men and a dog there.

Getting third place in the group would put us in a good position for the Europeans because hopefully there will be one or two teams in our group that we are capable of beating.

Playing for his country means a lot to him and he has fought his way back into the team. Keith came into the squad late for the game in Azerbaijan and has been ever present since. He is a good example of having to battle your way into the team and keep your place.

The games would have been difficult with Aaron and they will be more difficult without him for sure.

Tommy said that international football just isn't for him.

It brought home to us what the win against England meant to the fans and everyone in Northern Ireland.

Keith has come strong again.

If we can do that and upset some of the bigger teams we can get closer to qualifying for a major championship again.

If we could finish third it would be a magnificent achievement.
