Northern Ireland will kick off their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with home games in March against Estonia and Belarus.

Germany will be at Windsor Park in September with Holland here next November. 

Mick McCarthy's Republic have a March opener in Gibraltar. 

NI boss Michael O'Neill has said the GAWA qualifying group will be "extremely difficult" and the nature of the draw in Dublin on Sunday morning was "hard to take".

The Republic had been drawn out third from pot three, and would have gone into the group with Germany and the Netherlands, but as one of the hosts for the tournament in 2020 they could not be placed alongside two other fellow hosts, with the Germans staging games in Munich and the Dutch in Amsterdam.
