BBC Sport - Northern Ireland v Slovenia: Roy Carroll says videos helped him save penalty

Videos helped Carroll save penalty

Northern Ireland goalkeeper Roy Carroll says watching videos of previous Milivoje Novakovic penalties helped him save the Slovenian's spot kick in Tuesday's friendly at Windsor Park.

Conor Washington's first-half goal put Michael O'Neill's side ahead and Carroll's penalty save helped Northern Ireland set a new record for the country of 10 international games unbeaten.

"I've been watching the penalties the last two days. I guessed the right way. He went down that way before in the two penalties I watched on the videos," Carroll, 38, told BBC Sport Northern Ireland's Mark Sidebottom.

Carroll made his Northern Ireland debut as a 19-year-old in 1997 and Monday's game was his 43 international cap.
