Billy Kee scored a hat-trick as Northern Ireland Under-21s beat their counterparts from the Faroe Islands 4-0 in a Euro 2013 qualifier at the Oval.

Kee opened the scoring with a fine first-time effort in the 25th minute and drilled in a low shot from just outside the area three minutes later.

Josh Magennis turned his man and fired home from six yards on 32 minutes.

Kee shot home from close range for his third on 75 and James Knowles was sent-off for deliberate handball after 79.

Kee also missed an open goal from the edge of the box after the interval.

The Torquay striker had not scored in six appearances prior to this match.

Steve Beaglehole's side had been held to a disappointing draw by the same opponents in their Group Four opener.
