  1. Thanks and good night

    That is all for our coverage of Northern Ireland's final warm-up game. Not a classic, but a useful exercise nonetheless. 

    Six days to go until we get down to the serious business in France.

    Be sure to join us next Friday for the opening ceremony and France v Romania. Bye.

    "The confidence is intact. The run continues, the belief still there.

    "I was very impressed, we were organised players and the players who came in were good. 

    "Everything is positive for next week in Nice."

  3. FULL-TIME

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Northern Ireland end with a corner, which beats everyone in the box. Game over.

    Not a thrilling final friendly before these teams head to France. But Northern Ireland can take a lot of encouragement from a solid defensive display that gives them the longest unbeaten run of all 24 sides heading into the Euros.

    "Paddy McNair has had a good game, he has done very well."

  6. SUBSTITUTION

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Conor McLaughlin gets a couple of minutes of action as he comes on for Paddy McNair.

  7. Post update

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Bizarre corner. It is hugely over-hit, beating everyone in the box. Not the delivery you need when you are looking to win a game.

  8. Post update

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Slovakia win a corner as the clock ticks up to 90 minutes.

    Agubata Odinaka: There can only be one conclusion from this friendly match, Northern Ireland are never going to win the Euros this summer.

    "It is proper team play defensively from Northern Ireland. 

    "They look very compact."

  11. Post update

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Weiss has a pop for Slovakia from the edge of the box but a deflection takes the sting out of it and makes it easy for Michael McGovern to save. Northern Irish backs firmly against the wall now.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Another Northern Ireland change. Shane Ferguson is replaced by Lee Hodson.

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Oliver Norwood goes off with Corry Evans coming on.

    "What a delievery that was. 

    "A good piece of goalkeeping, I don't think he knew a lot about it.

    "It could quite easily have been in the back of the net."

  15. Post update

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Almost a Slovakia own goal! Northern Ireland have been camped in their own half practically since the break but they nearly snatch the lead with a rare attack. Paddy McNair's driven cross from the right is met by the diving Martin Skrtel with a touch that needs quick reflexes from Matus Kozacik to keep out.

    "The final ball in was great. Hamsik just can't get a touch on it. That was a super piece of play."

  17. CLOSE!

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Oh, what a ball! Slovakia's best move of the match ends with a ball driven across goal from the rigth and just past the diving Marek Hamsik at the near post.

  18. Post update

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    Northern Ireland have 10 minutes to see out. If they don't concede they will head to the Euros as the team possessing the longest unbeaten streak. The form team, if you will. Who would have thought it?

  19. Post update

    Gerry Armstrong

    Former Northern Ireland International

    "Northern Ireland are not keeping possession long enough. This is a dangerous period.

    "Slovakia are starting to up the tempo."

  20. Post update

    Slovakia 0-0 Northern Ireland

    They may be digging in, but Northern Ireland have no way out when they do get the ball. It is asking a lot to survive 10 minutes under constant pressure.
