Nelson 'overwhelmed' at 100th NI cap

Northern Ireland Women's captain Julie Nelson says it was a privilege to become the first women's international to make 100 appearances for Northern Ireland.

The defender almost marked the occasion with a fantastic goal but her 30-yard free-kick was tipped on to the post as the home side lost 1-0 to Slovakia in their final World Cup qualifier.

"I thought I had scored and was half celebrating as I knew I had struck it well, but hitting the post summed up our night," she said.
