Northern Ireland forwards Josh Magennis and Jamie Ward emphasise that confidence is high in the camp ahead of their opening World Cup qualifier with the Czech Republic.
"We know we have what it takes to be competitive up to the last minute of the game and it takes just one moment of quality to win a match. We possess a lot of players who can provide that moment of magic," argued Magennis.
"The whirlwind of the Euros is still fresh in our mind but we must put that behind us now and concentrate on what lies ahead," added Ward.
