Dons duo help NI finish first

12 October 2015

Ben Reeves and Lee Hodson were part of the Northern Ireland squad that secured top spot in their Euro 2016 qualifying group on Sunday.

Michael O’Neil’s men, who sealed qualification last week with a win over Greece, drew 1-1 away at Finland in their final group fixture - a result which was enough to see them finish in first place, one point above Romania.

Northern Ireland became the first fifth seeds to win a European Championship qualifying group.

Reeves, Hodson and co picked up six victories from their 10 games, winning three matches away from home – heading into this campaign, Northern Ireland had only won three away competitive matches in 13 years.
