Northern Ireland boss O'Neill frustrated after Azerbaijan draw

Roy Carroll, Michael O'Neill and David Healy give their thoughts on the 1-1 World Cup qualifier draw with Azerbaijan

Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill rued missed chances after the 1-1 draw in the World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan at Windsor Park.

"It was a very frustrating night and one of those games where it didn't seem to go for us," he said.

"From the moment they scored we dominated and should have won."

O'Neill also revealed that Azerbaijan manager Berti Vogts apologised to him for the "behaviour of his players" after time-wasting during the game.

He added: "The number of times the trainer came on to the field - I feel the referee should have handled that better."

Northern Ireland, who are nine points behind Group F leaders Russia, wasted at least six excellent opportunities before record scorer David Healy equalised from a free-kick in the sixth minute of injury-time.

The winless run is now 11 games, while O'Neill is without a victory in his seven games at the helm.

"To be fair the players went to the 96th minute and David popped up with an equaliser," said O'Neill.

"We just have to keep doing what we're doing, keep believing in the players and working with them.

"It's not what we hoped for, to be dropping points at home to two of the weaker nations, but we've shown we can pick up points away from home.

"I'm not conscious of pressure - I'll continue doing the job the way I've been doing it."
