Captain Steven Davis is looking forward to the draw unfolding

Steven Davis says that despite the disappointment of tonight’s 1-0 defeat in Norway it’s a great feeling to know a play-off spot for the FIFA World Cup finals in Russia awaits Northern Ireland next month.

The Northern Ireland captain said;

“It’s going to be interesting to see the draw, I think everyone will be tuning into that one to see who we get.

“No matter who it is it’s going to be difficult over the two legs, we expect that, but on paper you can have a little bit more of a favourable draw depending on who you pull, so it will be interesting viewing.”
