Futsal Home Nations: Northern Ireland set to take on Wales

Northern Ireland kick off their Futsal Home Nations Championship campaign this evening with a big clash against Wales. 

The three-day competition, staged at St George’s Park, Burton-upon-Trent, also features Scotland and hosts England.

Northern Ireland’s only win at last year’s tournament, which was held in Newry, came courtesy of a 2-0 victory over the Welsh and that’s something coach Jonny Michael will be aiming to replicate this evening.

The match, which is being streamed live on the BBC Sport website and via the Red Button, kicks off at 5pm.

Michael’s charges take on holders England on Saturday (4pm) before going head-to-head with Scotland on Sunday (1pm).
