Northern Ireland players have generously donated their match fees from the 2016 European Championships - worth a total of £46,000 - to a cancer charity.

The Northern Ireland-based charity Cancer Fund for Children offers "practical, emotional and financial support" to those suffering with the illness, while the squad also visited Daisy Lodge - a facility that hosts families who have been affected by cancer - ahead of their match on Tuesday with Croatia.

"We wanted to give something back," Gareth McAuley - who's shirt from the win over Ukraine was also donated - told Sky Sports.

"We got a lot out of football and wanted to use Euro 2016 in a positive way."

Every single player from the squad donated their fees to the charity.
