Northern Ireland have drawn the hosts England as well as Austria and Norway in their group for the Women's Euros next summer.
They are familiar foes for Kenny Shiels' side, as they've played both the English and Austrians in World Cup qualifiers over the past week while Norway were in NI's qualification group for the Euros.
The three group games at the 2022 finals will be played in Southampton.
Northern Ireland are the lowest ranked in the 16-team tournament but they're aiming to spring a few surprises:
