The BBC Sport NI website is to provide live video coverage of Northern Ireland against Costa Rica in a friendly in San Jose on Sunday 3 June (18:00 BST).

The game will be the second of the squad's fixtures in their Central America tour, following the 0-0 draw against Panama on Wednesday.

Highlights of that game will be available on the BBC website on Wednesday.

Extended highlights will be shown at half-time in the Costa Rica game.

Coverage of Sunday's game with Costa Rica will begin approximately 10 minutes before kick-off.

Michael McNamee will provide commentary, with John O'Neill on expert analysis.

The matches are being used as preparation for Northern Ireland's Uefa Nations League games against Austria and Bosnia-Herzegovina in the autumn and also next year's Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Both Panama and Costa Rica will compete in the World Cup in Russia in June and July.

O'Neill could hand out five debuts against Panama as Irish League winger Gavin Whyte is in line for a first senior game along with Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Shayne Lavery, Jordan Thompson and Conor Hazard.
