Northern Ireland striker Josh Magennis is targeting three points against San Marino this weekend.
The two sides go head to head at a sold-out National Football Stadium at Windsor Park on Saturday afternoon in a UEFA 2024 qualifier.
A win to kickstart the campaign is front and centre of Magennis’ mind as he prepares to win a 74th senior cap - if he gets the nod from boss Michael O’Neill.
Hopefully, first and foremost, we manage to get the three points and start the double-header on a positive note
“Regardless of if we’re playing San Marino or any other nation, winning at home is vital to us,” said the 33-year-old frontman.
“To be able to do that on Saturday afternoon is huge, especially as it’s the first part of a double header.
“I think if we win the first game the momentum for the second game against Slovenia should look after itself.”
Magennis netted twice against San Marino in a World Cup qualifier in 2017 and said he would love to repeat the feat against Saturday’s visitors.
“Scoring against anyone is brilliant but to be able to do it against San Marino again would be fantastic,” he added.
“Hopefully, first and foremost, we manage to get the three points and start the double header on a positive note.”
