Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill expects a high-intensity "British-style" battle in Sunday's World Cup qualifier against Norway at Windsor Park.
A victory will move second-placed Northern Ireland to 10 points in Group C and in a position, says O'Neill, when his side will really start to believe that qualification "is a realistic prospect".
"We also have the opportunity to put seven points between ourselves and Norway," added O'Neill.
