  • Oliver Norwood was omitted from the NI squad for this double-header as he was suspended for the Nations League game v Austria (H)
  • Results elsewhere meant NI were relegated from League B before kick-off. However, due to revamp of the format for the 2020/21 UEFA Nations League, no teams were eventually relegated. The League B group sizes changed from three teams to four and NI were spared relegation
