Watford defender Craig Cathcart was at the heart of Northern Ireland’s stern defence as the Green and White Army qualified for their first-ever UEFA European Championships and their first taste of major tournament football in 30 years at the weekend. Michael O’Neill’s side defeated Euro 2004 champions Greece 3-1 inside a bouncing Windsor Park on Thursday night thanks to goals from Steven Davis (2) and Josh Magennis, before Cathcart himself netted Northern Ireland’s equaliser during their 1-1 encounter in Finland to top Group F on Sunday evening. The only thing missing from Cathcart’s perfect weekend was a clean sheet, but he won’t mind too much after helping his country book their place at Euro 2016 next summer in France.
