Northern Ireland U21 0-0 Iceland U21
Northern Ireland's hopes of competing at the 2019 European Under-21 Championship have been damaged after a goalless draw against Iceland.
Ian Baraclough's team dominated their guests at a blustery Coleraine Showgrounds but were unable to find a way past Iceland's Sindri Olafsson.
Northern Ireland are four points behind Spain in Group Two and have played two games more than the leaders.
Slovakia are two points behind in third place with Iceland another point back.
Both the third and fourth-placed teams also have a game in hand on Northern Ireland.
The home side appeared to determined to bounce back from the disappointment of their 5-3 defeat by Spain at Shamrock Park as they made a busy start to the game.
They could have scored twice inside the opening 10 minutes as wing-backs Bobby Burns and Jamie McDonagh attacked the fringes of the Icelandic defence.
McDonagh's swerving shot had to be batted away by Olafsson before Ben Kennedy failed to direct his header on target after the Stevenage forward was left unmarked at the back post.
The visitors threatened sporadically on the counter-attack as Albert Gudmundsson's free-kick flashed across the face of goal and Tryggvi Hrafn Haraldsson could not get on the end of a delightful through pass.
In contrast, Gavin Whyte was a constant threat for Northern Ireland and he had a couple of excellent chances to break the deadlock before half-time.
The pace of the Crusaders winger saw him break the offside trap in the 29th minute but he could not make a strong connection on his finish after rounding Olafsson, who then produced a good save to deny the same player just minutes later.
Playing with the wind at their backs for the second half, the hosts resumed with a renewed determination to create a goal.
Shayne Lavery could not get on the end of a cross from Burns before Whyte forced a diving save after a good turn and shot from the edge of the area.
Defender Ryan Johnson's shot was hacked off the line before Lavery's header flashed narrowly wide.
In spite of their dominance, Northern Ireland nearly fell behind in the 65th minute when Ottar Magnus Karlsson and Gudmundsson teed up Haraldsson but his shot somehow failed to hit the target.
Both teams visibly tired during the closing stages but Kennedy forced another excellent save after a turn and shot before debutant keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell was called on in stoppage time to deny Gudmundsson what would have been a dramatic, and undeserved, winner.
