NI boss Michael O'Neill says his players 'deserved more' against Portugal

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill says his players 'deserved more' from their World Cup qualifier against Portugal at Windsor Park, which they lost 4-2.

"The players' workrate was phenomenal and for the first 60-65 minutes I thought we were excellent. The last 20 minutes were something of a blur," said O'Neill.

"In the cold light of day we can take a lot of positives, but we are very disappointed at the moment," he added.
