  1. A night that will live long in the memory

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine (Agg: 4-1)

    They did it. Northern Ireland did it.

    Put a big fat tick beside history-making please for Kenny Shiels' girls.

    Qualifying for a major international women's tournament for the first time - what an achievement.

    The squad and coaching staff will celebrate long and hard no doubt, but we will call it there for the night.

    Read Andy Gray's match report here and look forward to more reaction across all BBC Sport channels.

    Thank you and goodnight!

  2. 'Ukraine didn't stand a chance against us' - Callaghan

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine

    Quote Message: You know what, Ukraine didn't stand a chance against us because we believed in ourselves. Kenny and his team came in 18 months ago and instilled this tremendous belief and they've made us into an amazing team - and look what we've done. We're going to the Euros next year, it's unreal. from Marissa Callaghan Northern Ireland captain

    Quote Message: The improvement that this side has made under Kenny Shiels is one of the biggest success stories in Northern Ireland sporting history. Reaching the Euros will feel like a dream in the morning but they have a whole year to prepare for that.
  4. 'A dream come true' - Caldwell

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine

    Quote Message: It's an absolute dream come true. We can't believe it. There are no words. Behind the scenes, the girls have done amazing preparation and the coaching staff have been unbelievable. It's unbelievable for the country and there is going to be a ripple effect in the years to come. Women's football in Northern Ireland can kick on from here. from Nadene Caldwell Northern Ireland goalscorer

  5. Let's put this in perspective...

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine

    Andy Gray

    BBC Sport NI at Seaview

    This is a part-time side ranked 49th in the world.

    They were written off by everyone before a ball was kicked in qualifying.

    They've been ravaged by injuries and players have stepped up time and time again.

    They scored a last minute equaliser against Wales and beat Belarus away with 10 players.

    They had one friendly from December and the majority of their Irish League-based squad haven't played a competitive match since December.

    They've played their must-win games behind closed doors without the vocal Green and White Army.

    It's a simply ridiculous achievement.

  6. True game changers

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine (Agg: 4-1)

    A second-half goal from captain Marissa Callaghan and a late strike from Nadene Caldwell gave Northern Ireland a 2-0 win on the night and a 4-1 play-off victory on aggregate.

    That's immense. Really immense.

    These girls have made themselves heroes.

    Game changers is the strapline, and my goodness have they changed the landscape of women's football in Northern Ireland.

    More reaction to come.

  7. Not a dry eye in the house

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine

    Andy Gray

    BBC Sport NI at Seaview

    Oh. My. Days.

    This incredible side are something else!

    NORTHERN IRELAND ARE GOING TO THE EUROS!

  8. FULL-TIME

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine (Agg: 4-1)

    They've only gone and done it!

    Northern Ireland make history by reaching the finals of an international women's tournament for the first time.

    Wow. That's huge.Simply huge.

    Just let that sink in for a bit.

  9. GOAL

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Ukraine (Agg: 4-1)

    Icing. On. Cake.

    Nadene Caldwell makes it 2-0 in the final minute.

  10. Where'd they get that from?

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine (Agg: 3-1)

    Six minutes. Yes, you read that properly. Six minutes of injury time added on.

    Not sure how.

    Northern Ireland must keep their heads and see this out.

  11. Post update

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine

    Andy Gray

    BBC Sport NI at Seaview

    Car horns are going off outside Seaview, everyone is on their feet inside the ground.

    This is a special, special moment for a special, special group of players.

  12. RED CARD

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine (Agg: 3-1)

    Ukraine's Pantsulaya gets a straight red card for a ridiculous challenge on Sarah McFadden.

    From bad to worse for the visitors.

  13. Post update

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine (Agg: 3-1)

    That was dangerous from Olha Basanska, who got in behind the home defence on a rare Ukraine attack.

    Her cross is well cleared and a minute later, NI keeper Jackie Burns comes and claims a cross from the other wing.

    She has been dominant throughout while her opposite number has not been.

  14. Getting closer

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine

    Andy Gray

    BBC Sport NI at Seaview

    Northern Ireland are dropping deeper but still look in control.

    They want this more than Ukraine, and you can sense it with every tackle being cheered louder and every bit of strong defensive play being applauded vigerously by the home bench.

    It's within touching distance now...

  15. This is your captain Call-ing!

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine (Agg: 3-1)

    Northern Ireland fans will absolutely lap this up.

    Captain Marissa Callaghan manages to get on to her own flick on to score a massive, massive goal and give her side the lead in the second leg.

    Watch. Enjoy. Repeat.

  16. Post update

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine (Agg: 3-1)

    Next to nothing in terms of a response from Ukraine since falling behind.

    Still 20 minutes to go, of course, but they will need to start threatening soon if they are to have any chance at all of ruining what could be a Northern Ireland glory night.

  17. Calmed down yet?

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine (Agg: 3-1)

    Wow. What a big, big goal that was. Insert generic superlative here.

    As captain, Marissa Callaghan embodies everything that is good about this Northern Ireland team and it is fitting that she should score that goal on this potentially historic night.

  18. Never. Give. Up.

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine

    Andy Gray

    BBC Sport NI at Seaview

    Unbelievable!!! Never give up!

    It's a goal which suits this Northern Ireland team down to the ground, with Callaghan showing determination which made sure she got to the ball first!

    A very relaxed Northern Ireland came out like it was a game of five-a-side for the second half and they now look like a team in control as they build up a cushion.

    Led by captain fantastic, if Northern Ireland didn't believe they certainly do now!

  19. GOAL

    Northern Ireland 1-0 Ukraine (Agg: 3-1)

    Goal for Northern Ireland.

    Captain Marissa Callaghan gets it and what an important one that could be!

    A Julie Nelson free-kick into the box was flicked on by Callaghan who then managed to beat keeper Samson to the ball and slide it home.

    Poor goalkeeping again from Samson and this time it has cost her side dearly.

  20. Post update

    Northern Ireland 0-0 Ukraine (Agg: 2-1)

    Pretty much as you were in the opening stages of the second half.

    No real attacking rhythm from either side, with Ukraine still looking suspect from high balls into the box.
