Hughes proud as he wins 100th NI cap

Aaron Hughes speaks of his pride and relief he wins his 100th Northern Ireland cap in Saturday's Euro 2016 warm-up draw against Slovakia in Trnava.

The 36-year-old was introduced for Craig Cathcart in the 30th minute after the Watford defender picked up a knock to his back.

Cathcart's injury is not serious but Hughes proved a more than able replacement as he helped Northern Ireland produce another clean sheet.

"I'm very proud but there's probably a lot of relief in there too. There were times when I doubted whether I was going to make it to 100 caps," Hughes told BBC Sport Northern Ireland.
