Steven Davis tonight aims to realise a World Cup dream, as Northern Ireland bid to overturn a narrow deficit in their decisive play-off clash with Switzerland.

The Irish were controversially beaten 1-0 in Belfast on Thursday night, after a dubious penalty handed the Swiss a first leg advantage.

Manager Michael O’Neill, who described the decision for an alleged handball against Corry Evans as “bewildering”, has urged his players to channel their anger and use it to help book their place in the 2018 finals, in Russia.

Saints midfielder Davis is expected to again captain his country for the match, in Basel (5pm GMT), as Northern Ireland look to reach the World Cup finals for the first time since 1986.
