Rubbish friendly.  Tickets would need to be cheap and freebies handed out to youth groups to get a half respectable crowd.

Only 4 UEFA teams available, needed a game and it had to be at home. Limited options.

From the fans pov, certainly (esp on a school night), but maybe a handy enough wee loosener for Michael and the team before the big one on the Monday?

One more reason to get off to a flying start in the four opening games.

We owe those bastards.

Six years on and it mightn't be too different a line-up from that which screwed up in Luxembourg:

Carroll, JEvans, Hodson, DLafferty, McAuley, Ferguson, McGinn, Davis, Norwood, Ward, Paterson (O'Connor, McKay and Grigg off the bench)

10 Sept 2013 - Luxembourg 3 v 2 NI, Att. 1,114

And Hughes, McGivern, Baird, Brunt, KLafferty and Shiels featured in the home game 12 months previously:

11 Sept. 2012 - NI 1 v 1 Luxembourg, Att. 10,674

If the ifa have any wit the tickets will be no more than £20 for this 

correct, this is no big deal can't see this one anywhere nearl selling out

just realised their home game in 2013

was Luxembourg's first home victory in a World Cup qualifier since they beat Turkey 2-0 on 22 October 1972

Northern Ireland will also have another friendly in and around 13 October (opposition and venue TBC).

Zero glamour.  Mid week friendly.  £15 would be plenty.
