Craig Cathcart played his part in Northern Ireland's 1-0 victory over Belarus on Tuesday evening and said he is looking forward to tougher tests to come.

The win was Northern Ireland's fourth from four games and took them to the top of their group table, ahead of both Germany and the Netherlands, who have both played fewer games.

The Watford defender said he was excited about the prospect of facing both of those nations in the future and that Northern Ireland were a side full of confidence.

After the game, he told the BBC: "We know they're going to be difficult games, but we're not stupid. We've set ourselves up great now, we've got four wins out of four and we're sitting top of the group.

"We can go into those games now knowing they're going to be great nights for us, they are the games you want to play in as players and there's going to be some great nights at Windsor Park to come."
