Northern Ireland are managed by Michael O'Neill who replaced Nigel Worthington in December 2011. O'Neill signed a two-year contract extension in November 2013 meaning he will remain in charge until 2016. After failing to lead Northern Ireland through to the World Cup his next task will be leading his side through to Euro 2016.
Worthington stepped down as Northern Ireland manager in October 2011 after he failed to guide them to Euro 2012. A series of poor results, including a home defeat to Estonia, meant that the country could no longer qualify for the Finals and Worthington thus decided to end his four-and-a-half-year reign as manager.
