Portugal v NI Women’s Euro qualifier to be streamed

This evening’s UEFA Women’s Euro 2025 qualifier between Portugal Women and Northern Ireland Women is to be streamed live by BBC Sport.

The game at Estádio Dr Magalhães Pessoa in Leiria will be streamed on the BBC Sport NI website and the BBC iPlayer from 8.40 BST. The game kicks off at 8.45.

BBC sports presenter Thomas Kane will be on commentary, while former Northern Ireland international Ashley Hutton will be the co-commentator.

Northern Ireland senior women’s team boss Tanya Oxtoby says her squad are excited for part one of a tough double header against Portugal which will conclude with a home game against the Portuguese on Tuesday (4 June) at Mourneview Park in Lurgan.

Next week’s game in League B Group 3 - Portugal are top seeds in the group and Northern Ireland are third seeds - is also due to be streamed live by the BBC.

Northern Ireland registered a 0-0 home draw with Malta and a 3-1 away win against second seeds Bosnia and Herzegovina last month as they got their B3 campaign under way.

Portugal have won both of their B3 games to date – 3-0 at home against the Bosnians and 2-0 away to the Maltese.
