Michael O’Neill is looking forward to games against Austria and Bosnia and Herzegovina

Michael O’Neill feels Northern Ireland have been given “a good draw” in the inaugural UEFA Nations League. 

After his side were drawn with Austria and Bosnia and Herzegovina in Group 3 of League B, the Northern Ireland manager said: "I think it’s a good draw. They are two teams that I have not faced yet as an international manager. 

“Austria is a country that we prepared in for the Euros so it will be nice to go and play there in a competitive game. 

"Bosnia again are a strong team but I think it gives us an opportunity for promotion in the Nations League and also the opportunity to win a place at Euro 2020." 

The home and away games against both countries will be played between September and November this year, with dates to be finalised later today.
