IN PICTURES | NI senior women's squad train ahead of Faroe Islands clash

Northern Ireland senior women’s team were put through their paces in training this morning as they ramp up preparations for Friday’s UEFA’s Women’s Euro qualifier against the Faroe Islands. 

Kenny Shiels’ squad were last in action at the start of March when they competed at the Pinatar Cup in Spain. 

A win against the Faroese would move Northern Ireland above Belarus in Group C putting them three points behind second-placed Wales. 

If Northern Ireland win their remaining four matches in the group they will have a chance of competing for a place at Women’s Euro 2022, which is being staged in England.

Nine group winners, plus three runners-up with the best records, will automatically qualify for the finals. The other six runners-up will play off for the remaining three berths in the 16-team finals.

Friday's game, which takes place at Tórsvøllur in Torshavn, kicks off at 5pm GMT.
