U19s set to face Hungary, Czechia and Portugal

Northern Ireland's U19 men’s team are set to play Hungary, Czechia and Portugal in a mini tournament later this month.

Gareth McAuley’s men will face all three nations at Inver Park, the home of Larne FC, in a UEFA European Under-19 Championship prep tournament.

The matches will serve as vital tests for the Northern Ireland squad ahead of the UEFA European Under-19 Championship, which is set to be hosted in Northern Ireland in 2024. 

The summer tournament will see McAuley’s players go up against some of the best young players in Europe.

The former Northern Ireland and West Brom centre back was appointed as boss of the U19s squad in August.

The schedule of games to take place at Inver Park later this month is as follows:

Wednesday 15 November: Northern Ireland v Hungary – 7pm

Saturday 18 November: Northern Ireland v Czechia – 7pm

Tuesday 21 November: Northern Ireland v Portugal – 7pm
