Statement from Kenny Shiels

‘I wish to apologise for my comments made in the post-match press conference last night. I am sorry for the offence that they have caused. 

‘Last night was a special occasion for the women’s game in Northern Ireland and I am proud to manage a group of players who are role models for so many girls, and boys, across the country. 

‘I am an advocate for the women's game and passionate about developing opportunities for women and girls to flourish.’

Kenny Shiels, Northern Ireland senior women's team manager
