While England has already qualified for the World Cup, Northern Ireland is one step closer.

Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas played the full 90 minutes for Northern Ireland in a 1-0 loss to Norway, but after Scotland’s draw in Slovenia, the results didn’t matter. Northern Ireland will await to see who they will face in the playoffs, but for now they still have a chance.

Anyway, on to the daily links.
