Northern Ireland’s latest attempt to reach their first ever UEFA finals begins with a trip to Hungary on Monday.
Michael O’Neill’s men will be hopeful that the new expanded format has given them a golden chance to qualify for Euro 2016.
Despite their proud early history – twice finishing second in the World Cup, in 1938 and 1954 – Hungary have not competed at major tournament since 1986.
Hungary will start the game as favourites, thanks largely to their fine recent home record.
Since November 2012, Hungary have suffered defeat just once in 10 matches in front of their own supporters.
Meanwhile, Northern Ireland have not won an away game since beating Slovenia 1-0 in September 2010.
In fact, they have only won two of their last 32 matches at any venue.
Greece, Romania, Finland and the Faroe Islands are the other teams in Group F. The top two sides will qualify for Euro 2016, while the third-placed team could also go through depending on how many points they get.
Ben Reeves and Alex Bruce have withdrawn from Northern Ireland’s squad.
Reeves has a hamstring injury, while Bruce wanted to be with his wife, who is due to give birth.
Hungary have some players that British football fans may be familiar with, including Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, Watford midfielder Daniel Tozser and former West Brom playmaker Zoltan Gera.
