Losing 1-0 to Poland on their first game in Euro 2016 left a disappointment for Northern Ireland, but they must immediately gear themselves for an encounter against Ukraine this Thursday.
The Green and White Army’s boss, Michael O’Neill admitted that their Euro opening fixture was disappointing, but he hope his players can use it as a motivation against Mykhaylo Fomenko’s men.
O’Neill also warned his players to play a close attention on Ukraine’s physicality and set pieces ability, as those qualities can hurt Northern Ireland.
Furthermore, the tactician also keen on seeing more competitiveness from his players, as it didn’t really shown on their first game against Poland.
Northern Ireland probable line up against Ukraine:
McGovern(gk); McLaughlin, Cathcart, Evans, McAuley(def); Ferguson, Dallas, Davis, Norwood(mid); Lafferty, Washington (att).
