BBC Sport - Euro 2016: NI defender Hughes enjoying 'fantastic experience'
Hughes enjoying 'fantastic experience'
- From the section Football
Northern Ireland defender Aaron Hughes says being part of a tournament like Euro 2016 is "something I never thought I would get to experience or play in".
The 102-times capped player admits he is "over the moon" that he reversed the initial decision he made to quit international football in September 2011 when Michael O'Neill was appointed manager just a few months later.
"For it all finally to become a reality has been fantastic. It's been a great thing to be part of, the tournament itself, and with this bunch of players."
