NI averaging just below 100. A very fair return in pairs darts. They look well set to go on and win from here

Canada 1-3 NI: A neat 70 checkout from Dolan. After hitting T18 he takes 2 darts to hit D8 and leave his team just 1 leg away from a semi-final spot

GAME SHOT AND THE MATCH - Canada 1-4 NI: After both teams miss several darts to win the leg Dolan finally find D5

NI win the tie 2-1 to reach this evening's semi-final

Up next it's reigning champions England and the small matter of 16 time World Champion Phil Taylor. He faces Austria's Mensur Suljovic

The Austrian team of Suljovic and Rowby John Rodriguez are no mugs and have had possibly the smoothest run to the QF. This is a significant step up in class though

Italy and Singapore, who proved no match for Austria, certainly didn't bring 18 World titles with them

We're straight back into the action. Which possibly tells you of the quality of the last tie which had its moments but failed to come to life on the whole

England 1-0 Austria. Phil Taylor's 180 pressures Suljovic into missing 74. Taylor then cleans up 32 to break the throw
