Northern Ireland begin their qualifying campaign against Estonia

Northern Ireland will play Estonia on March 21 next year in their first Euro 2020 qualifier.

Michael O’Neill’s men will take on heavyweights Germany and the Netherlands in Group C, as well as Estonia and Belarus.

Germany dropped into pot two for the draw in Dublin after being relegated in the UEFA Nations League.

The Republic of Ireland was initially drawn in the group but Mick McCarthy’s team were moved because the group already contained two of the 12 host nations for Euro 2020.

“It will be very tough but we will welcome two massive teams to Belfast for home games.”
