The special training session at the Queen's University, Belfast playing fields saw the local media put through their paces by the international team manager.

"Obviously I'd hope the standards are a bit higher than what we saw this morning," the manager laughed.

"I think the players' focus is greater when it comes to the competitive internationals," he said.
"And certainly, for the World Cup campaign and our away fixture at Russia, we couldn't ask for a more difficult game. But it's a game I'm looking forward to."
