Martin O'Neill was never Northern Ireland manager so I have no idea why he's the manager here, it should be Billy Bingham (two World Cup qualifications, quarter finals in 1982, manager for 18 years). David Healy should be in first team, he is by far NI's top scorer, including a hattrick against Spain in a 3-2 win, a winning goal against England, two goals against Sweden in a 2-1 win, a record 13 goals in Euro 2008 qualifying. He can easily replace Derek Dougan here who never did anything particularly important for NI, or maybe Joe Bambrick who only ever played for the combined Ireland team...

Likewise, Peter McParland can be in first team over Patsy Gallacher who also only played in the combined Ireland team, when he was already old and with 0 goals in the 12 games he played, while McParland scored 5 goals in the 1958 World Cup (against Argentina, West Germany and Czechoslovakia, no less). Only Pele, Fontaine and Rahn scored more goals than him at that tournament, to be honest it's simply unbelievable he isn't in this team. Aaron Hughes can also replace Sammy Nelson, the team already has 3 left backs with McMichael and Elder (McMichael was one of the most important players at the 58 World Cup, and Elder was just better than Nelson). Hughes was captain for about 10 years and one of the better defenders in the Premier League for most of that time, and played in that Euro 2016 team too.

Some names for the reserves: Gareth McAuley, Jonny Evans, Kyle Lafferty, Chris Brunt, Chris Baird, Maik Taylor, Wilbur Cush, Nigel Worthington.

Martin O'Neill coached Ireland and has the same initial letter of Michael O'Neill who has been Nothern Ireland coach for seven years now. He probably confused them.

Maybe, but I don’t think this team has been updated since it was created, by which point Michael O’Neill had only been in charge for just over a year, so I doubt it...
