BBC to show Scotland-Northern Ireland friendly

The Northern Ireland senior men’s team’s international challenge match against Scotland at Hampden Park later this month is to be broadcast live on BBC iPlayer and BBC Two NI.

The game on Tuesday 26 March is the second of two upcoming international friendlies for Michael O’Neill’s side. They will also be taking on Romania on Friday 22 March in Bucharest.

The challenge matches will act as preparation games for both the Romanians and the Scots ahead of UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany this summer.

Northern Ireland are set to play four friendlies – two this month and two in June – before the next UEFA Nations League campaign begins this autumn.

Stephen Watson will present the BBC’s coverage of the game against Scotland live from Hampden Park in Glasgow, with Leeds United’s Stuart Dallas, Northern Ireland international Caragh Hamilton and current St Mirren manager Stephen Robinson all on the panel.

Thomas Kane will be on commentary with coverage starting on 26 March at 730pm on BBC Two NI.

The game will also be broadcast live on BBC Scotland and BBC Three.
