Home   /   Women European Qualifiers: Northern Ireland V Faroe Islands and Wales V Belarus- Live Blog

Northern Ireland come into this game needing a win to finish second ans achieve a Euro Championship play off spot, which causes this game to be the biggest in the history of their Women’s side.

Faroe Islands will have to gain their first point of the campaign to spoil the party, where they haven’t scored a single goal and have conceded 37.

Wales will have to win their home game against Belarus to have a chance of a play off spot but are having to rely on an unlikely Faroe Island upset due to Northern Ireland scoring two away goals in a 2-2 draw against them earlier on in the campaign.

Belarus have nothing to play for but can ruin Wales hopes if they can avoid defeat tonight.
