Northern Ireland v Bulgaria

About this programme

Northern Ireland v Bulgaria (Kick-off 7.45pm). Jackie Fullerton introduces coverage of tonight's friendly encounter at Windsor Park, where both teams begin preparations for their World Cup 2010 qualification campaigns. Nigel Worthington signed a two-year contract to stay on as Ireland boss last month and would love to celebrate that by inspiring his side to victory tonight. David Healy has featured only sparingly for Fulham this season and, as he takes to the field this evening, will be determined to prove his undoubted ability, which has earned him 25 international goals.
