Welcome to Windsor Park for the latest instalment of Northern

0:00:230:00:27

Ireland's European qualifying campaign. The feral island are the

0:00:270:00:37
0:00:370:00:37

visitors, acting that has caused us problems in the past. Can Nigel

0:00:370:00:42

Worthington's men get back on track and beat the minnows of world

0:00:420:00:52
0:00:520:00:57

football tonight? Here is Jackie three points. Will David Heaney end

0:00:570:01:04

his goal drought? Looking at Northern Ireland First, Nigel

0:01:040:01:14
0:01:140:01:39

Worthington have decided on a 4, 4, nine of the players to stunt

0:01:390:01:49
0:01:490:02:04

Northern Ireland into a draw for a Nigel Worthington. Just one

0:02:040:02:14
0:02:140:02:19

win in a last 19. Brian Kerr is just over two years in the job. He

0:02:190:02:29
0:02:290:02:32

has won just two other previous 16. Away we go. The draw in the Faroe

0:02:320:02:37

Islands last October was a stunner for Northern Ireland. It was only

0:02:370:02:42

our third home game of the group tonight, and three points is a must.

0:02:420:02:49

There cannot be any slip-ups against a side who sits 112 in the

0:02:490:02:55

world this evening. Anything less than three points, our

0:02:550:03:05
0:03:050:03:14

qualification dreams will lie in Ireland down, and put them on the

0:03:140:03:24

way to what the fans would love, a goal festival. Northern Ireland her

0:03:240:03:34
0:03:340:03:37

big favourites with the bookmakers tonight's at 11-2 on. But,

0:03:370:03:45

sometimes, as we know, football does not go the way you wanted. - -

0:03:450:03:55
0:03:550:04:06

will just have the one man up, Johan Simun Edmundsson, with Joan

0:04:060:04:16
0:04:160:04:26

so Steve Davis and Sammy Clingan are well advanced. Corey Evans was

0:04:260:04:33

lurking in there. First touched therefore Jakup Mikkelsen, who will

0:04:330:04:42

be 41 on Monday. He is a teacher and an MP, would you believe?! The

0:04:420:04:47

Faroe Islands just as a population of 47,000 people. I have been told

0:04:470:04:57
0:04:570:05:08

Ireland defence with Stephen Craigan missing. He has retired. A

0:05:080:05:13

great servant, we will miss him. That was a nice play by Patrick

0:05:130:05:19

McCourt, but just slightly too far for David Healy there. The men from

0:05:190:05:25

Rangers and Celtic linking up. The idea was right from David Healy,

0:05:250:05:35
0:05:350:05:59

just a bit too far. A bright start equaliser at the meeting between

0:05:590:06:09
0:06:090:06:20

Gareth Macaulay has moved up as well. It is a corner. Good pressure.

0:06:200:06:30
0:06:300:06:54

The crowd tonight is expected to be think it is this Kippur. His first

0:06:540:06:59

international goal. Aaron Hughes, I thought he was never going to

0:06:590:07:05

score! This is his 77th appearance. He is desperate to qualify for a

0:07:050:07:15
0:07:150:07:16

major tournament, and he has put Northern Ireland on its way. What a

0:07:160:07:26
0:07:260:07:27

moment for him! He will remember that. It was in off the post. He

0:07:270:07:37
0:07:370:07:38

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 70 seconds

0:07:380:08:48

against Northern Ireland the last tonight, it could be their 100 coal

0:08:480:08:56

in European Championships. If Northern Ireland scored four, we

0:08:560:09:06
0:09:060:09:32

would be up to 600 goals. It all toe on it. It was a good block, to

0:09:320:09:42

give the defender credit. Patrick McCourt started it all. Lovely

0:09:420:09:50

little bald there. David Healy just couldn't get it through. Fordi

0:09:500:10:00
0:10:000:10:00

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 70 seconds

0:10:000:11:08

Ireland. The crowd thought there was a handball there. I think the

0:11:080:11:12

corner is given. Sammy Clingan Essien, what about the handball,

0:11:120:11:22
0:11:220:11:39

referee? It did hit his hand, and to me that is a handball. Gareth

0:11:390:11:49
0:11:490:11:50

McAuley committed the foul there. 10 blue shirts behind the ball. It

0:11:500:12:00
0:12:000:12:36

Daniel Udsen got that back to his keeper. Christian Holst is having

0:12:360:12:45

to forage deep. Not a bad effort. Lee Camp did well. Johan Simun

0:12:450:12:52

Edmundsson looking for his second international goal. Lee Camp has

0:12:520:12:58

yet to concede a goal at Windsor Park. This is only his second game

0:12:580:13:08
0:13:080:13:19

at headquarters. He was well down Northern Ireland's are leading one

0:13:190:13:29
0:13:290:13:31

goal to nothing. Aaron Hughes got the goal with his first

0:13:310:13:41
0:13:410:13:41

international strike. Grant McCann, down he goes. Nothing given. Well,

0:13:410:13:46

well, well! I would like to see that again. The man from Bosnia

0:13:460:13:51

with the whistle was not impressed. This might be a better angle. I

0:13:520:13:57

think the referee got it right. He was lucky she was not booked for

0:13:570:14:02

simulation. They might have been a little bit of contact, but I don't

0:14:020:14:12
0:14:120:14:26

really see it. Grant McCann was accord. Greater vision. -- as super

0:14:260:14:36
0:14:360:14:40

out of turn. He has got the first yellow-card of this game. Not take

0:14:400:14:50
0:14:500:15:00

everything to do. -- not a clever thankfully. The two Evans brothers

0:15:000:15:10
0:15:100:15:39

Northern Ireland? Four minutes left until half-time. Pat McCourt, he

0:15:390:15:47

lays a 10! I thought it was 2-0. David Healy denied by the upright.

0:15:470:15:52

He thought he was back in business. He hasn't scored for almost three

0:15:530:15:59

years. He hasn't scored in the last 17 internationals. He thought this

0:15:590:16:05

was his comeback. It wasn't to be. Pat McCourt did so well. He picked

0:16:050:16:15
0:16:150:16:17

his spot. I think the keeper got a touch. Yes, the keeper has saved it.

0:16:170:16:27
0:16:270:16:59

Well done. He cannot believe it. He They are all lined up, they all

0:16:590:17:09
0:17:090:17:11

break, in it comes. The keeper couldn't get a foot on it. Lee Camp

0:17:110:17:18

got away with that. In it comes. He had it, then he didn't, and just

0:17:180:17:26

not enough room for a telling touch. It is half time. Just a little

0:17:260:17:31

scare for Northern Ireland, right on the blow. All of the promise in

0:17:310:17:36

that first half going to the man with the only goal, Aaron Hughes,

0:17:360:17:41

in this his 77th appearance. It had to happen sometime, it couldn't

0:17:410:17:46

have happened at a better time in this European championship campaign.

0:17:460:17:54

The home side in the lead by one-0. They are here in hope and

0:17:540:18:04
0:18:040:18:05

expectation. At the start of the second half, Gareth Macaulay has

0:18:050:18:10

gone off and he is being replaced by Craig Cathcart from Blackpool.

0:18:100:18:20
0:18:200:18:36

West Brom, must have picked up a bit too complacent, perhaps in the

0:18:360:18:41

first half, but great fingertip save denied David Healy a second

0:18:410:18:50

goal. Tonight Northern Ireland a second goal. -- denied Northern

0:18:500:19:00
0:19:000:19:18

Ireland. I am told Gareth Macaulay roar on the boys in green. What

0:19:180:19:28
0:19:280:19:39

does the second 45 minutes have in too many complaints, but I am sure

0:19:390:19:49
0:19:490:19:49

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 70 seconds

0:19:490:20:36

he would like another goal to make over the top. He could have done

0:20:360:20:43

better. He could well have scored his first international goal. They

0:20:430:20:49

let off for Northern Ireland, make no mistake about that. He was

0:20:490:20:55

unlucky, perhaps. It should have been, it could have been 1-1. It's

0:20:550:21:05
0:21:050:21:17

Faroe Island team to growing confidence. -- grow in confidence.

0:21:170:21:27
0:21:270:21:27

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 70 seconds

0:21:270:22:08

They don't want to let them back is arriving! Quite a finish by the

0:22:080:22:14

man from Rangers! 2-0! Halfway through the second half. That would

0:22:140:22:23

be the clincher without doubt. They enjoyed that. A third international

0:22:240:22:32

call for Steve Davis. -- ball. His first ever in the European

0:22:320:22:36

championship game. His last was almost three years ago against San

0:22:360:22:44

Marino. That was quite a finish. Full marks to Niall McGinn. He was

0:22:440:22:49

brought on for his pace and he showed it there. A-grade pass, and

0:22:490:22:57

the keeper couldn't keep it out. 2- 0 for Northern Ireland, their 100

0:22:570:23:02

goal in European championship football in this, the 96 qualifier,

0:23:020:23:12
0:23:120:23:39

and he enjoys the moment. So does what a way to get your first

0:23:390:23:49

international goal! They are delighted! Choir not?! Northern

0:23:490:23:57

Ireland coasting it. He has got that flair, he has got that touch,

0:23:570:24:07
0:24:070:24:09

and how about that for a final touch?! He gets it back. 10 out of

0:24:090:24:18

10 to Joni Evans, up there with the 1-2. Did you like that? Kisii did.

0:24:180:24:24

-- yes, he did. It is tougher these days to qualify. But at least they

0:24:240:24:34
0:24:340:25:05

are giving it a go and they are on the man in the blue shirts. They

0:25:050:25:15
0:25:150:25:21

have taken out quickly, Northern David Healy. He is getting a bit

0:25:210:25:30

frustrated. The fans are chanting his name. They would love to see

0:25:310:25:40
0:25:410:25:53

He has missed it. What a great chance. Evans almost got it in.

0:25:530:26:03
0:26:030:26:07

What a bit of magic from Pat Aaron Hughes it was that was up

0:26:070:26:17
0:26:170:26:47

wonderful! That his class! -- is a class! Two goals from the Celtic

0:26:470:26:55

man. The man with the X factor! The man with a touch, the flair, that

0:26:550:27:02

little flash of genius occasional late, and there you saw it. Take a

0:27:020:27:10

bow, Pat McCourt! He has portrayed them all out -- she has tortured

0:27:100:27:17

them all night. Wonderful exhibition. There is the confidence.

0:27:170:27:23

He just loves the ball at his feet. The goalkeeper had no chance. That

0:27:230:27:28

is one to remember right in front of the stand! They will have

0:27:280:27:38
0:27:380:28:03

international goal. -- Northern against Austria in the European

0:28:030:28:13
0:28:130:28:24

won it here in November 1995. There were two goes that night. My will

0:28:240:28:29

settle for four. Nigel Worthington, he has taken a bit of criticism for

0:28:290:28:34

some of the results, the lack of goals, but they are back on the

0:28:340:28:38

winning trail tonight, Pat McCourt, he has illuminated the Windsor Park

0:28:380:28:44

this evening with some lovely flair, some lovely touches, but above all,

0:28:450:28:50

two very important touches, two goals, and I think he might be in

0:28:500:28:55

line for a starting place. RN fuse set us on the way after five

0:28:550:29:02

minutes on the other goal came from the man from Rangers, Steve Davis.

0:29:020:29:09

-- Aaron Hughes. A good night, have few scares, but nothing to trouble

0:29:090:29:19
0:29:190:29:24

of the fans. It is not often you see Patrick McCourt smiling, but he

0:29:240:29:34
0:29:340:29:40

is! Doesn't the final score make That was quite a night! Great

0:29:400:29:50
0:29:500:29:51

result for us. We showed patience when we had to, and a bit of

0:29:510:29:56

talents when we needed it. The rain helped us a little bit. We could

0:29:560:30:06
0:30:060:30:08

move the ball around pretty quick. Overall, we're very happy. I urge

0:30:080:30:17

you got your first goal! How did it feel? Fantastic. I never expected

0:30:170:30:27
0:30:270:30:29

it, to be honest. And lot of head scratching down. You were dropped

0:30:290:30:35

earlier, so did you feel you had a point to prove? I think you always

0:30:350:30:44

have to prove yourself. There was a point to prove for everyone. Just

0:30:440:30:47

thankful in the end the we one quite convincingly after a pretty

0:30:470:30:57
0:30:570:30:58

sluggish first act. Top be to the second goal. It was wizardry. What

0:30:580:31:03

is going through your mind? It was nice to score a good goal. Any goal

0:31:030:31:13
0:31:130:31:13

is nice. It was very pleasing. I had a quick look up and sold the

0:31:130:31:22

keeper of Islam - - the keeper off his line.

0:31:220:31:28

I think the scoreline was quite harsh. I think we played quite

0:31:280:31:33

brightly and created some good chances. We had a great chance at

0:31:330:31:41

half-time. At times we took the game quite well to Northern Ireland.

0:31:410:31:50

The chance we missed in the second half with the Daniel Udsen was very

0:31:500:31:56

hard. We all said about getting off to a good start. We played at a

0:31:560:32:04

good tempo, and we got a goal through that. It after the goal we

0:32:040:32:08

started to play in front of them and it made it difficult for her

0:32:080:32:14

cells. We sorted out one or two things at half-time. Great credit

0:32:140:32:22

to the lads, they drew off at them and we got our just reward with a

0:32:220:32:27

very good win. No Northern Ireland move up to third place in the grid

0:32:270:32:33

table, just two points behind Slovenia. Up next is Serbia.

0:32:330:32:38

Joining me is Michael O'Neill. That was a first-class performance

0:32:380:32:44

tonight. It was. We spoke earlier about the potential banana-skin,

0:32:440:32:48

but they approached the game very well. They got a head early which

0:32:480:32:54

helped sell them down. They took over the game in the second half

0:32:540:32:59

and it became the Patrick McCourt show them. A lot of very good

0:32:590:33:06

performances out there. Great atmosphere in the stadium. The fans

0:33:060:33:11

and everyone were left asking why haven't we seen more of Patrick

0:33:110:33:19

Crane - - Patrick McCourt, when he plays a well? He is a very exciting

0:33:190:33:25

player. Even at the start of the game you could see that. The

0:33:250:33:32

challenges fitting him into the team. Against the Faroe Islands, it

0:33:320:33:37

is easier to do that. He showed us tonight what he is capable of and

0:33:370:33:41

hopefully we will see a lot more of him. We do now starting against

0:33:410:33:49

Serbia? I would, but Nigel has to look at the situation, maybe look

0:33:490:33:57

at where he plays him. I think he could play behind the striker. They

0:33:570:34:00

restricted him in the second half and kept him on the left-hand side

0:34:000:34:06

a lot. He was very effective coming in on his right hand side. Against

0:34:060:34:11

stronger opposition, with the opposition full-back then start to

0:34:110:34:19

give more problems, exposing maybe the weaker part of Patrick's game?

0:34:190:34:26

I thought his passing was excellent. He has a great range of passing and

0:34:260:34:36
0:34:360:34:37

has all was to come for the ball. - - always looking for the ball.

0:34:370:34:44

the captain on the scoresheet! delighted for him. It was just what

0:34:440:34:53

we needed, at the right time of the game. It was her first corner. - -

0:34:530:34:57

our first corner. If it probably settle the crowd down and at times

0:34:570:35:01

more than Adam played some fantastic football. The midfield

0:35:010:35:07

three were very good and there was a lot of positive tonight.

0:35:070:35:15

Fantastic strike from Steve Davis. Yes, we talk about him in a regular

0:35:160:35:22

basis, and at times tonight him and Patrick McCourt look really

0:35:220:35:25

comfortable playing with each other, even though ironically they both

0:35:250:35:32

played for Rangers and Celtic! He pops up when the full areas and

0:35:330:35:39

hurt the opposition. Four games left in the campaign, to home and

0:35:390:35:47

two away. Serbia next. If Serbia win - - if it Northern Ireland beat

0:35:470:35:53

Serbia, we would be in a good position. The two games against

0:35:530:35:57

Estonia are very winnable. Italy at the end would be a massive

0:35:580:36:03

challenge. The Serbia game is going to be a crunch game. Three points

0:36:030:36:09

there would be a massive step. Northern Ireland can win here

0:36:090:36:14

against Serbia. It will be a big physical team and they have a lot

0:36:140:36:22

of quality, but the confidence from tonight's, a positive atmosphere in

0:36:220:36:31

the stadium and, who knows? It will be a different type of game,

0:36:310:36:37

obviously, against better opposition, but tonight must boost

0:36:370:36:41

the confidence of. Yes, there will be more quality. But keep the ball

0:36:410:36:51
0:36:510:36:54

a lot better, and physically there will be a lot stronger. What we

0:36:540:36:58

sought tonight, a lot of good performances, retaining the ball

0:36:580:37:03

well, looking for the ball, moving the ball well. Some of the

0:37:030:37:10

interplay between the midfield three with Paddy no court coming in,

0:37:100:37:20

Coming up next is the match against Serbia. We will have television

0:37:200:37:24

Northern Ireland are attempting to reach the finals of a major competition for the first time in twenty five years. When Nigel Worthington's side take on the bottom-placed Faroe Islands in Group C of the European qualifiers, they will be without the services of striker Kyle Lafferty who scored their equaliser when these sides last met in October 2010. Stephen Watson presents highlights of the game from Windsor Park.
