Northern Ireland and Romania take each on in Windsor Park with both teams clear at the top of Group F. A Draw while not a disaster for Romania would probably leave Northern Ireland in a precarious position. Northern Ireland, managed by Michael O'Neill will look to Lafferty , Evans and McNair to lead by example as both their experience and ability make them stand out players in theNorthern Ireland set up. Evans as a Manchester United player has learnt how to deal with the big situations as they arise and he will be a key player for the home side on Saturday.
Romania are tough to make out how good they are. With Stancu up front Romania have a solid team with an attacker that can finish chances as they arise. Romania though are built around a solid defence conceding just one in five games. Tottenham center half Chirches is a key figure for Romania and they will look to keep Northern Ireland at bay as a draw for Romania leaves them in control of the group.
This is quite a tight game to call , I see Northern Ireland as being able to cancel out Romania in what should be a low scoring game. This should be a tough game for both teams and one that could be decided by a solitary goal. I like the unders here and am big on them here as I dont see many goals in either side.
