Grigg and Mckay's Northern Ireland set for big UEFA Euro Qualifier.

  • Grigg and Mckay unused subs v Faroe Islands.
  • Strikers' Northern Ireland set for crucial Euro Qualifier v Hungary tonight.
  • Kenny sent off for England U19s, Purzycki plays full 90 for Poland.


After being unused substitutes in Northern Ireland's 3-1 victory away to Faroe Islands, Wigan Athletic forwards Will Grigg and Billy Mckay are gearing up for a huge UEFA Euro 2016 Qualifier this evening against Hungary at Windsor Park.

Former Latics midfielder Michael O'Neill would lead his side into the European Championships in France next summer, if they can defeat Hungary this evening at Windsor Park.

Northern Ireland currently sit top of their group on 16 points, one above second place Romania, and four ahead of Hungary with three games remaining.

Both forwards could be set for call ups next month when their nation see out the qualifiers against Greece (H) and Finland (A).


It was a battling 3-2 victory away to Germany for England's Under 19s on Friday night, with Jonjoe Kenny red carded just after half time following a handball in the penalty area.

England led 1-0, but were pegged back from the resulting penalty.  Goals from Dominic Solanke and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were enough to put England 3-1 up, before Germany pulled a goal back with 12 minutes to play.


Adrian Purzycki stepped up his youth international experience on Saturday evening, making his first appearance for Poland's Under 19s, following on from eight caps at Under 18 level.

Poland came from behind to draw 1-1 in Bangor against Wales, with Purzycki featuring for the full 90 minutes.

The midfielder will now go up against Belgium on Tuesday night in Tubize at 7.00pm.
