UEFA Nations League | Northern Ireland vs Austria

The fourth and final matchday for Northern Ireland in the UEFA Nations League will be on Sunday 18 November when they take on Austria in Belfast (5pm kick-off). 

The boys in green last played Austria in World Cup 2006 qualifying.

Austria have a strong squad with the likes of Bayern Munich’s David Alaba, West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic and RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer in their ranks, although they finished fourth in their World Cup 2018 qualifying group behind Serbia, Republic of Ireland and Wales. 

The new competition for Europe’s 55 national teams is aimed at strengthening national team football by replacing most friendlies with competitive matches and by allowing countries to play against equally ranked teams, according to European football’s governing body.
