Davis set for Northern Ireland qualifiers

By SFC Media time Tue 29 Sep Club

Steven Davis has been named in the Northern Ireland squad for their decisive UEFA EURO 2016 qualifiers against Greece and Finland.

The Saints midfielder knows his nation are assured of at the very least a third-place finish and a play-off spot, but they head into the final two games top of Group F.

Michael O'Neill's men could book their place at next year's tournament in France with a win against Greece – who are currently bottom of the table – at Windsor Park on Thursday 8th October (kick-off: 7.45pm BST).

Should Hungary fail to beat the Faroe Islands in their qualifier on the same night, Davis and his teammates will qualify for next summer's tournament whatever their result against Greece.

Northern Ireland end their campaign away to Finland on Sunday 11th October at the Olympiastadion, with the game getting under way at 5pm BST.

O'Neill's side will need to better the two results of Florin Gardos's Romania if they are to finish top of the group.
