Women's World Cup qualifier: N Ireland 0-0 Bosnia & Herzegovina

NI's Julie Nelson is challenged by Amira Spahic

Northern Ireland secured their first point in the World Cup qualifying campaign after being held by Bosnia & Herzegovina at Mourneview Park.

The hosts went closest to scoring and Julie Nelson saw her free-kick hit the bar deep into injury-time.

Bosnia keeper Almina Hodzic kept out first-half efforts from Aimee Mackin and Sarah McFadden.

Jessica Doran and Mackin failed to hit the target before Nelson was denied by the woodwork in the dying seconds.

Northern Ireland were beaten 2-0 by Scotland in their opening qualifier at Fir Park on Saturday.

Alfie Wylie's team are back in action on 23 November with a home qualifier against Poland.
