Sharing is Caring

Ian Baraclough has been appointed Northern Ireland boss, the Irish Football Association has confirmed.

He’ll succeed Michael O’Neill.

Michael O’Neill joined Championship club Stoke City in November last year after 8 years in charge of North Ireland.

O’Neill initially combined the national team job before stepping down in April.

O’Neill initially wanted to lead the team to Euro 2020 play-offs but decided against carrying on when the play-offs were postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Baraclough, 49, has been in charge of North Ireland under-21 team for the last 3 years.

The former Scunthorpe and Motherwell manager’s first game in charge will be against Romania in the UEFA Nations League on September 4.
