BBC Sport NI will have live coverage on TV, radio and online of N Ireland's pre-European Championships friendly against the Netherlands in June.

The game is on Saturday, 2 June at the home of Ajax, the Amsterdam Arena.

Shane Glynn, Editor Sport BBC NI said: "Friendlies don't get much bigger than this and we're delighted to be bringing fans live coverage of the match.

"It'll be a huge challenge for Michael O'Neill and his team, but hopefully they can get a positive result."

The kick-off time has yet to be finalised, and more details on the coverage will be released closer to the time of transmission.

The Netherlands, currently ranked number two in the world, showed their pedigree by beating England 3-2 at Wembley on Wednesday night.
