Will Irish eyes be smiling?

This week the UEFA Training Ground continues its series following Northern Ireland at the UEFA Regions' Cup while freestyler Woody is set a new challenge.

Last June eight teams from across Europe gathered in Bulgaria for the fifth edition of the UEFA Regions' Cup – football's flagship competition for amateur clubs. The UEFA Training Ground team were there too and this week we continue our exclusive look at the tournament with part two of our documentary following the exploits of the Eastern Region AMA team from Northern Ireland.

Tuzla test
After getting the perfect start by upsetting the odds against France's Basse-Normandie AMA in their first group game, Harry McConkey's troops were hoping to continue their form against Bosnia-Herzegovnian representatives Tuzla Canton AMA. You can see how they got on by clicking here from Thursday.

Super skills
An exciting week of Training Ground releases also sees the latest in a series of eleven sessions from freestyle expert Paul Wood as he attempts to score from the penalty spot … blindfolded. And you can still catch Woody's first seven challenges and masterclasses on the site too if you want to learn to go Around the World or to do the performer's signature move, The Woody.

Big names
With the Training Ground now hosting almost 100 videos, you can also catch exclusive masterclass sessions by Kaká and Andrea Pirlo – among arguably the greatest array of football talent assembled for a learning-based website. Coaches Roy Hodgson (Fulham FC) and Lars Lagerbäck (Sweden) have also been recruited to help inform and educate players and coaches of all ages and abilities, as part of the most comprehensive guide to soccer skills and tactics on the internet.
