THREE OF THE UNITED KINGDOM’S so-called home nations have qualified for the 2016 European soccer championship: England, Wales and, for the first time in its history, Northern Ireland.
This will be Northern Ireland’s first major tournament in decades, and it’s spurring a ton of enthusiasm around the national team.
“You’ve got people putting out flags outside their houses. You’ve got people putting stickers up on their cars. It’s the talk of the town in all the bars,” said BBC journalist Chris Page.
