Training with the Northern Ireland squad at Windsor Park on Thursday fulfils a boyhood dream for Snow Patrol lead singer Gary Lightbody.
The musician said he had “one of the best days ever” after taking part in a training session with Michael O’Neill’s squad ahead of Saturday’s vital Euro 2016 qualifier against Romania.
Lightbody described his own performance as “not great” but he will be at Windsor Park to support the team on Saturday and says he will travel to France next summer if they qualify for the Euro finals.
