Did You Know | Norway VS Northern Ireland
DID YOU KNOW?
- After captaining his country to successive wins over San Marino and the Czech Republic, captain Steven Davis is just three caps away from representing Northern Ireland 100 times.
- By scoring against San Marino, Davis also became one of Northern Ireland’s top ten record goalscorers. He is joint tenth with Billy Bingham, Jimmy McIlroy, Peter McParland and Johnny Crossan on ten goals.
- Norway, sitting second bottom, may be enduring a miserable time of it but at least they can lay claim to being the only team on the planet undefeated against Brazil. They have faced the five-time World Cup winners four times, winning two and drawing two.
- Northern Ireland are aiming to reach their first World Cup finals since 1986 and compete in successive major tournaments for the first time in their history.
