  2. 'There is more in us'

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Estonia

    Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill tells Sky Sports: "A good win for us, it was never gong to be an easy and straight forward game. We had opportunities in the first half and the longer the game goes on they would have more belief. But we go the goal in the second half and could have scored a few more. There are a lot of things we are pleased about and some bits to work on.

    "In the Nations League, our end product was not good enough at this level. We got into the final third a lot but the final ball was not good enough or did have enough men getting across. I have told the players we have to improve on that.

    "Niall McGinn did well tonight, scored a great goal. I was not disappointed with any of the performance but there is more in us at times. We broke well form midfield and it is nice to get ta clean sheet.

    "It was a great chance for them but Bailey Peacock-Farrell made a great save, a young boy coming in.

    "We always have to look for improvements. We dropped the intensity a little and it is hard to keep it going. We came out with the right attitude in the second half."

    Michael O'Neill will have the team in the changing room now with the nutritionist and the sports scientist, they will be getting them ready for Sunday already. All of a sudden the legs are feeling a lot lighter, if you'd have come away from here with a draw you'd be feeling worried about Sunday. Michael and the boys will be on a high.

    Stephen Craigan

    Former NI defender on BBC Radio Ulster

    Quote Message: After the first goal the players blossomed. You could see the confidence. Over the past 18 months we forgot how to win games and the confidence starts to elude you so that's why getting in front was crucial. You could feel it in the stadium, there was such relief.
  8. 'Job done'

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Estonia

    John O'Neill

    Former Northern Ireland defender on BBC Radio Ulster

    Quote Message: Job done. The three points were the most important thing. They stuttered in the first half but by getting Davis and Saville into the game with crosses into the box they got there. You've got to hope that getting the wins gives them a lot of confidence, it might not be the best performance but it's the result that counts.

    Ajet Shehu: Very unlucky for Kosovo to concede in the 90th minute. A draw is a great result against a very tough Danish side. England we’re coming for you baby!

  16. Kosovo narrowly miss out on memorable win

    Kosovo 2-2 Denmark

    Kosovo, who will be competing in the European Championship qualifying for the first time ever and are in the same group as England, came so close to a memorable friendly win against Denmark.

    The Kosovans scored first, Tottenham's Christian Eriksen equalised with a penalty, then Swansea's Bersant Celina put Kosovo back in front. However, they were denied in injury-time as Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojberg scored in the 91st minute to save Denmark as it finished 2-2.

    Denmark players celebrate the 2-2 equaliSer
  17. CLOSE!

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Estonia

    Northern Ireland could have had five or six tonight.

    Mags has another chance from the edge of the box, but again it is into the hands of Lepmets.

  19. 'Much improved second half'

    Northern Ireland 2-0 Estonia

    John O'Neill

    Former Northern Ireland defender on BBC Radio Ulster

    Quote Message: The second half has been better. We have seen much more of Saville and Davis and players have gambled and got their bodies in the box. It has paid off.
