Northern Ireland take on Latvia on Friday 13th November, 2015, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC Two NI.

On paper this game should be about as close as the marriage of John Travolta and any female, with Northern Ireland group winners and Latvia finishing bottom of their section after ten games, but paper is only worth anything if it’s got the queen’s head on it. After making it this far, the Irish will want to confirm their ability to win games, and any loss could have a devastating effect on their confidence as a result.

As for Latvia, they won’t really care too much about how this goes as long as they aren’t embarrassed, although finishing below Kazakhstan should have been embarrassment enough.
