The Northern Ireland women's team kick-off their World Cup qualifying campaign on Friday night.

Kenny Shiels' side will face Luxembourg at Inver Park in Larne (7pm). 

They're hoping to get off to a winning start in European Qualifying Group D which also includes England, Austria and North Macedonia.

One of the all-time GAWA greats has been speaking about it: 

Northern Ireland are bidding to make the finals in Australia and New Zealand in 2023, building on their historic UEFA Women's Euro 2022 qualifying success.

Friday's game is followed by the visit of Latvia to Windsor Park on Tuesday - then a trip to Wembley next month.
