Michael Obafemi commits to Republic of Ireland

Outside Dublin's government buildings, Mr Eastwood said that hard days lay ahead for Prime Minister Theresa May, but the group's focus was on Northern Ireland. I think he has a chance of performing there obviously.

A group of Northern Ireland politicians are meeting with the Taoiseach in Dublin to discuss the draft Brexit deal. Speaking to the media yesterday, O'Neill said that Obafemi's final decision as to who he wants to represent was some time away, and as a result would be omitted from the squad for the competitive game with Denmark. "He made the call, it was really up to him", said O'Neill.

McClean has once again found himself in the spotlight in recent weeks over his decision not to wear a Remembrance Day poppy on his shirt, and the political sensitivities surrounding Thursday night's game have prompted O'Neill to speak to the midfielder amid fears he may be targeted once again. He's obviously got work to do.

"I spoke to him and he's really happy". He's only been in and around the Southampton first team a couple of times, he's very young, very raw, but he's at an age he can be honed with time.

"We didn't do enough going forward and through a lot of sloppiness ourselves we almost gave a couple of goals away", Martin O'Neill said.

There is so much more coming this weekend at Fanfest, such as the Yoshida's Letter from the Producer Live at 3:30 pacific. As a great surprise, 4.5 will also introduce the Blue Mage job, albeit with a very different rollout than normal jobs.

"Since the start of 2017, we've played 17 games".

However, when asked if Obafemi could end the speculation and play against Denmark next week, O'Neill replied: "I don't think I could rule that out".

Yeah, very much so. Certainly in terms of going forward, we should do better. Both teams are in a similar situation at the moment and we expect a tough game.' Northern Ireland's main problems have come in front of goal, where they have created 46 chances in their three Nations League games but scored only one goal.

"Overall I'm pleased with the performance. The manager knows that if anything ever happens, I'll be available".

"I'm not too anxious about them putting on a performance for me, I'm the manager and it's my responsibility so any bad passes made they eventually are down to me, but overall it's disappointing for our supporters".
