Belarus and Faroe Islands complete Group C line-up

Northern Ireland Senior Women will play against Norway and Wales in the UEFA Women's Euro 2021 qualifying campaign.

Alfie Wylie's side will also compete against Belarus and Faroe Islands in a five-team group (Group C).

The draw for the Euro 2021 qualifiers was made earlier today in Switzerland.

Norway are familiar faces to Northern Ireland as the countries were drawn against each other in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying campaign. Norway, who have reached the World Cup finals in France this year, were too strong for Northern Ireland in both WC qualifiers.

Wales will provide a stern test closer to home and will also bring club rivalries into the mix. Everton Ladies and Northern Ireland striker Simone Magill will face team-mate Angharad James, while Reading Ladies and Northern Ireland forward Rachel Furness will come up against Natasha Harding.

Belarus were drawn out of pot three earlier today and the Faroe Islands are the lowest ranked team in the group as they were drawn out of pot five. Northern Ireland were in the fourth pot with Norway in the top tier and Wales in the second pot.

Fixtures are yet to be announced for the campaign but when confirmed will be available on irishfa.com.
