Northern Ireland aim to atone for Luxembourg 'blip' - Davis

Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis says the team are determined bounce back from the shock defeat by Luxembourg by winning in Azerbaijan on Friday.

Michael O'Neill's side play in Baku before Tuesday's concluding qualifier in Tel Aviv against Israel.

"These two games give the chance to show our real quality and put the Luxembourg defeat right," said Davis.

Referring to this week's BBC State of football study which showed big falls in the number of Northern Ireland players in the Premier League and Championship in England, Davis acknowledged that "it is not an ideal situation".
