IFA plan sets 'tough challenge' - O'Neill

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill says there will be "no easy route" to the expanded Euro 2016 tournament despite IFA chief Patrick Nelson's belief that the country has a "big chance" of qualification.

"The qualification for the third-placed teams either via a play-off or directly obviously gives us a greater chance to qualify," said O'Neill.

"(But) Where we are at the minute, with the resources we have, we'll need a lot of things to go our way in a qualifying campaign."
