Will Grigg and Jonjoe Kenny set to kick-off their international fixtures tonight.
- Grigg’s Northern Ireland on the brink of Euro 2016 qualification.
- Jonjoe Kenny facing double header for England U19s.
- Adrian Purzycki preparing for two Poland U19 friendlies.
Will Grigg is set for a huge evening with the Northern Ireland international squad as former Latic Michael O’Neill takes his side into one of the biggest weekend’s in their footballing history.
Grigg and his teammates, including fellow Latics striker Billy Mckay who is on loan at Dundee United, head to the Faroe Islands on Friday evening for the first fixture of the penultimate Euro 2016 qualifying weekend knowing that victory will put them on the brink of making a first major finals in 30 years. A victory will, at least, all-but secure a play-off spot.
Should Romania defeat Hungary this evening, and Northern Ireland beat the Faroes, Grigg’s side will go into Monday’s Windsor Park clash with the Hungarians knowing victory will secure their place in France.
In youth international fixtures, on loan Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny heads to Germany on Friday for an U19 international friendly with England before travelling to Zagreb to face Croatia on Monday.
Development squad midfielder Adrian Purzycki is set to represent Poland’s under-19 side in Wales on Saturday evening in another friendly fixture before heading to Tubize to face Belgium on Tuesday night.
