Players showed a lot of character - N Ireland captain Steven Davis

Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis says the side showed "a lot of character" in their 4-2 defeat at the hands of Portugal in Belfast.

"Our tactics were spot on and I didn't see us losing the game when we got ourselves in front," said Davis.

"It was just unfortunate that we couldn't see it through to the end, but they have a lot of quality and Cristiano Ronaldo showed what a top player he is."
