On Saturday Nov 16, Northern Ireland will attempt to become unofficial world Champions, they only have to beat the Netherlands in Belfast.
This system works in the same way as boxing world titles work, in that the next title match is between the current holder and their next opponent. The Unofficial Football World Championships is based on the very first international between Scotland and England in 1872,
The Netherlands took the title on 6 September 2019 by beat Germany and this will be their fourth defence. Northern Ireland haven't held the title since 1933 when they beat Scotland in Glasgow.
