Switzerland v Northern Ireland

O'Neill accepted that there is nothing Northern Ireland can do about the decision.

On behalf of my wife, I would like to apologise unreservedly for the content and language contained in the tweet that she issued last night.

The Mirror took screenshots of the tweets before her account disappeared. "I would never condone racism in any way".

Hategan gave the second-half spot-kick having wrongly deemed Evans had handled Xherdan Shaqiri's shot.

At one point Felger said: "He's not a militarily-trained pilot, he's not a professionally-trained pilot, he's a Joe Q. Felger also apologized to his coworkers for having to "answer for my poor judgment" over the past 24 hours.

Corry Evans was equally furious and his misery was compounded by receiving a yellow card that rules him out of the return leg.

ENGLAND have conquered the world at under-17 level, but who are the players that brought home the trophy?

Michael O'Neill says Northern Ireland must seize the initiative in Thursday's first leg of their World Cup play-off against Switzerland in Belfast.

Henry's blatant hand ball, which was not spotted by the officials in the Stade De France, helped set up a William Gallas victor that sent France through to South Africa at the Republic's expense.

It's all about improvement and then to be ready for the moment you are used". But there is no problem. "As long as the other players are doing like this".

It was a awful decision by the referee, who then booked Evans - the brother of West Brom and former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans - ruling him out of the return leg on Sunday. He's claimed he seen something that did happen which is the hardest part to take about it. I spent three hours in a video conference with Federation Internationale de Football Association the other week on VAR and when you see what happened you would certainly be an advocate of it.

"I said to him "ref, you have to be 100% here". We should maybe focus on the players who can play, that would be more relevant". "It stops the ball dead - to hit his back we could tell and I'm sure everyone else could tell it was a bad call". And to actually think Northern Ireland has probably homed one of his smelly relatives!

Should O'Neill's team find a way past the Swiss, they would end a 32-year exile from the World Cup finals and become the first Northern Irish side in history to make back-to-back major tournaments after appearing at Euro 2016.

"We tried to do the same as Germany did, by keeping possession and not allowing them any 50-50 balls which would have given them the chance to counter-attack and got the crowd going".

On Louis CK and the crumbling idea of the 'good man'
Also up in the air is the fate of I Love You, Daddy , a feature film written, directed and starring C.K. Adlon also costarred with Louis C.K.in " Lucky Louie ", the short-lived 2006-2007 HBO sitcom.

To compound matters, Evans picked up a booking in the process and will now be suspended for the second leg and Hategan's decision to book rather than send off Switzerland defender Fabian Schar for an bad, two footed lunge on Stuart Dallas in the fifth minute merely added insult to injury. Fair play to them, I thought they were very good, they passed the ball really well and they have got some good players in their team.
