March Friendlies?

Recommended Posts

They'll probably wait intil the Nation's League draw is done (24 January).

Said in the paper yesterday the IFA planned to announce a home March friendly in the next few weeks. (19th to 27th March)

Today’s Mirror mentions a friendly with South Korea in March

Home or away?

Edit: Nevermind just saw Taz's post saying it'll be home.

hope ifa have double checked to make sure it's not NK, tough defence to beak down;)

We've never played either South or North Korea. Off the top of my head the only Asian teams we have ever played are:

Thailand (A) 1997 - 0-0 - Roy Carroll's debut
(we were supposed to play Philippines or Indonesia on that tour but the second game fell through)

Qatar (A / N) 2015 - 1-1

Is that it???

I didn't count Australia, New Zealand, Armenia, Soviet Union, Belarus etc. as I don't class them as Asia.

It's pretty hard to get excited about any friendly.

South Korea would be different at least.

How many do South Korea take away? Will it be tough to get a ticket in the home end? If we give them an allocation of 10% I reckon we'll all end up buying away zone tickets our contact from Jimmy Hong Kim in Ballyclare. I hope I am not the SEOUL person in the away end as I don;t know how they will react to our SONGs.

What are the odds of Niall McGinn scoring a hat-trick?

I see the BBC report on the Nations League fixtures , also talks about two friendlies 

"During the international windows this autumn Michael O'Neill's side will also be playing two friendlies, to be staged on Thursday 11 September and Thursday 15 November, with opposition and venues still to be agreed."
