Northern Ireland have been drawn against Ukraine in the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 play-offs next month.
Ukraine will host the first leg, with the return likely to be played in Belfast. The venues and dates have still to be confirmed, however they will be staged between 7 and 13 April.
This will be one of three play-off ties to decide who will be the final three teams to qualify for the Finals, which will be held in England. In the other matches, Portugal have been paired with Russia, whilst the Czech Republic will take on Switzerland. The draw was conducted by Nadine Kessler, who is UEFA's Head of Women's Football.
Ukraine are currently 24th in the FIFA World Rankings, with Northern Ireland in 49th place. The Ukrainians finished as runners-up in Group I behind Germany, finishing just above Republic of Ireland having narrowly won 1-0 when the two teams met towards the end of the qualifying campaign.
The last time that Northern Ireland met Ukraine in an international was at the Pinatar Cup in Spain twelve months ago, Ukraine beating an inexperienced Northern Ireland side 4-0 on that occasion.
