Northern Ireland secured second spot in Group C on Monday night after an impressive 2-0 win over Czech Republic at Windsor Park.

The hosts took the lead just before the half-hour mark, with Jonny Evans heading home after a corner.

Things got even better for the Irish on 41 minutes, with Chris Brunt scoring a fantastic free-kick.

After the break, the Czech Republic struggled to get themselves back into the game as their hopes of making it to Russia next summer dissipated.

    Top drawer!

    We’re now into the playoffs. Who do we play? Could be Slovakia, Sweden, Portugal / Switzerland, The Republic (imagine that!) / Wales (not again please)…

    Well actually the list goes on for quite a bit, and there’s quite a few very good teams that will be in the playoffs.

    So yeah, nice one that we’ve secured 2nd place. But let’s hold off too much celebration until we see who we face to get to the World Cup.

    It’s not gonna be easy sailing.
