  1. Team news – Lafferty one of three NI changes

    Netherlands v Northern Ireland (19:45 BST)

    The big news from Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill’s team selection is that Kyle Lafferty has been given the nod in a lone striker role.

    The Sarpsborg forward, who has not found the net for his country since November 2016, is preferred to Liam Boyce and Josh Magennis.

    Lafferty’s inclusion in place of the injured Conor Washington is one of three changes from the side which took to the field for the 2-0 defeat by Germany last month.

    Michael Smith and Shane Ferguson come in to play at right-back and left-back respectively, with Jamal Lewis ruled out with a knee injury and Niall McGinn dropping to the bench.

    Netherlands XI: Cillessen; Dumfries, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Blind; De Roon, Wijnaldum, F. de Jong; Bergwijn, Depay, Babel

    Northern Ireland XI: Peacock-Farrell, Ferguson, J Evans, Cathcart, Smith, Davis, C Evans, Saville, McNair, Dallas, Lafferty.

  2. Team news – Wales make four changes

    Wales manager Ryan Giggs makes four changes from the side that narrowly beat Azerbaijan 2-1 in Cardiff in Wales’ last Euro qualifier.

    Captain Ashley Williams misses out despite Chris Mepham’s injury, with Charlton defender Tom Lockyer preferred. Lockyer has played six times for Wales, but never in a competitive match.

    The other defensive change sees Tottenham’s Ben Davies recalled at left back, with Neil Taylor out.

    Wingers Tom Lawrence and Harry Wilson have both been carrying knocks and neither is deemed fit to start, with Jonny Williams and Kieffer Moore getting the nod.

    Moore, like Lockyer, makes his competitive debut.

    Wales are expected to play a 4-2-3-1 formation with Gareth Bale and Daniel James out wide and Williams behind Moore in attack.

    Slovakia XI: Dubravka; Pekarik, Hancko,
    Skriniar, Gyömber; Hamsik, Lobotka, Kucka; Mak,
    Bozenik, Rusnak

    Wales XI: Hennessey; Roberts, Davies, Lockyer, Rodon; Allen,
    Ampadu, Jonny Williams; Bale, James; Moore
