UEFA Women’s Nations League: Northern Ireland’s play-off opponent revealed

Northern Ireland senior women’s squad will be back in action early in 2024 in a UEFA Women’s Nations League relegation play-off.

Tanya Oxtoby’s squad will be aiming to retain their spot in League B as they face Montenegro over two legs – away and home – in February.

The girls in green and white finished third in Group B1 of the inaugural edition of the competition played from September to December.

Two wins over Albania and a draw at home to Hungary left them with seven points while Republic of Ireland topped the group with a full house of victories and the Hungarians finished in second place. Albania propped up the table with a solitary point.

Montenegro finished as runners-up to Azerbaijan in Group C3 with 12 points from six games.

The ties are set be played between 21 and 28 February with match dates, venues and kick-off time to be confirmed.
