Northern Ireland are gearing up for a massive Euro 2016 last 16 tie this weekend and their head coach, Michael O’Neil stated that his team won’t be expecting anything else aside from tough encounter against Wales.

O’Neill explained that Chris Coleman’s men have been performing well in Euro 2016, especially in their last group game against Russia, however, Northern Ireland are not lacking any confidence.

That confidence was shouted by their tactician, who believes that his side have the quality to get through from Wales’ challenge in this round.

However, O’Neill warned his players that in order to overcome Gareth Bale and co, Northern Ireland must be at their best since they will be experiencing a whole different contest compared to their previous meeting back in March which ended in a 1-1 draw.
