Faroe Islands manager Lars Olsen tips Northern Ireland to qualify for Euro 2016, although he maintains that Greece remain the favourites to win Group F.

Faroe Islands manager Lars Olsen has tipped Northern Ireland to reach the Euro 2016 finals following their strong start to qualification.

The Green and White Army maintained their winning start in Group F last night courtesy of a comfortable 2-0 win over the European minnows at Windsor Park.

It comes on the back of last month's away victory against Hungary, which has put Michael O'Neill's men at the summit of the early standings.

"The results in the group have been good for Northern Ireland and maybe they can qualify," Olsen told Press Association Sport. "In Hungary they were very good and at home they play very well.

"Greece is still the strongest team in this group, despite a slow start, but to have six points already is good for Northern Ireland - you cannot take that start away from them."

Next up for Northern Ireland is a trip to Greece on Tuesday night.
