New Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough reveals his goals in e-programme

The Irish Football Association has produced a digital matchday programme for tonight’s UEFA Nations League match between Northern Ireland and Norway at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.

In the programme Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough shares his thoughts as he prepares for his first home match in charge of the team.

And in his Manager’s View column he further reveals: “I am fortunate to have inherited a group of players who are very close-knit – there is a great togetherness in the squad – and who are led by good senior pros who lead by example.

“I think we, as a group, can build on the work of the previous manager and try to achieve our goals – wins in the UEFA Nations League, Euro 2020 qualification and, further down the line, qualification to a World Cup finals.”

The e-programme also features an interview with Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis as he is about to equal legendary keeper Pat Jennings’ long-standing caps record of 119 tonight.

Other features include an in-depth look at the Norwegians, including what tactics they may deploy against Bara’s boys, and an interview with Stuart Dallas.
