Yengi has two World Cup qualifiers against Lebanon, although both will be held in Australia. The first (March 21) is in Sydney, yet, with Middle East instability caused by the Gaza conflict, the away leg has now been switched to Canberra (March 26).

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland have a friendly in Romania on March 22 and visit Scotland four days later.
