Northern Ireland chiefs mull over Euro 2016 base options

Irish FA chief executive Patrick Nelson says that Northern Ireland's team base options are being considered following Saturday's Euro 2016 draw in Paris.

The governing body is also working out friendly fixtures ahead of the finals with the proposed game against Poland in late March now off after the two countries were drawn together in the same Euro 2016 group.

Northern Ireland plan to have two games in March with two further warm-up matches in May ahead of their opening Euro 2016 Group C fixtures against the Poles in Nice on 12 June.

Michael O'Neill's side will then face Ukraine in Lyon on 16 June before taking on world champions Germany at the Parc des Princes in Paris five days later.
